Although one of the greatest Reggae female vocalists, little is known about Nora Dean. She recorded solo and also as a member of The Soulettes, The Ebony Sisters and The Soul Sisters. Nora Dean's most known song "Barbwire" was a number one hit in 1969. Her songs today are considered great classics among early Reggae fans.
"Peace begins within" is a beautiful uptempo early Reggae masterpiece where Nora's vocal ability really shows. It is an unusual song depicting in a few words the hard reality of life, on an uplifting early Reggae beat. Brilliant track!
"Ay Ay Ay Ay" is yet another unusual track, a very Jamaican song - although not quite Reggae, wonderfully weird where Nora sings, moans, laughs, shrieks, whistles, delivering one of her most compelling vocal performance on a background of tribal drums and exotic guitar. Irresistible!
