Live at Montreux 2002 (Eagle Records, 2007)
UB40 is a legendary name in reggae music. The pioneering British band has had a stable line-up for over two decades. That shows in the tight knit sound achieved in this live recording made in 2002.
The reggae band was formed in 1980 in Birmingham, when eight reggae fans joined forces to create a band. UB40 plays roots reggae with elements of pop and soul, with a powerful brass section.
Live at Montreux 2002 contains some of UB40’s best known hits, including "Red Red Wine," "The Way you Do the things You Do," "(I Can’t Help) Falling in Love with You."
The Montreux performance is available on CD and DVD.
