The Ethiopians was one of Jamaica's most popular bands during the late ska, rocksteady and early reggae periods. Their third album Woman a Capture Man is a quieter record than their first releases. During that time Reggae music was shifting from the rough and faster songs towards a smoother and slower level. With the vocals of The Ethiopians in front of the mix and the organ sound in the background they recorded some harmonic and sweet songs. Woman a Capture Man shows us a band that's still developing and changing, in a good way.
The Ethiopians was founded by Leonard Dillon, Stephen Taylor and Aston Morrison. They recorded different single hits, like "Train to Skaville" and "Owe Me No Pay Me". During the tension times in Jamaica they let us hear a positive sound.
