About Joseph Hill & Culture:
From the market town of Linstead, Hill was a percussionist with the Soul Defenders band that played on hits at Studio One like "Picture On The Wall" by Freddie McKay. He formed Culture in 1976 - the trio had a big hit that year with "Jah Jah See Them A Come" and released albums for Joe Gibbs and Virgin Records' Frontline imprint. In the latter stages of their career, Culture recorded for a number of independent labels including Shanachie, Ras Records and Heartbeat Records. He was born the 22nd January 1949 in Linstead, St. Catherine Parish, Jamaica, and died on the 19th August 2006 in Berlin, Germany. His music will live forever!
