Cedric "Congo" Myton Inna De Yard
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Pressure Sounds
Inna De Yard is a series of acoustic sessions recorded live in the yard of renowned guitarist Chinna Smith, the idea being to present roots reggae the way it was originally created. The latest installment features the warbling falsetto of Congos leader Cedric Myton, accompanied by Skatalites trumpeter Dizzy Moore, singer Kiddus I, and unsorted unknowns. While the recording certainly has a raw feel, it sometimes could have benefited from the improved editing that a studio setting affords: the original Black Ark recording of "Congoman" may be an all-time classic, but the extremely loose version presented here seems excessively long at over 11 minutes. Elsewhere there are moments of brilliance and the DVD bonus track brings home the session‘s intimacy.
