|Titel van het nummer||Stand Up and Be Counted|
|Componist||F R Green|
This song comes from the Reality CD: Good News Week. Reality is composed of Rob Green (lead vocals), Gibson Smapson (bas guitar/vocals), John Ringo Spruyt (lead guitar), Julian Souisa (lead guitar), Rodney Ellis (percussion), Henry Nijenhuis (drums), Percy Wijngart (drums), Leslie Babrouth (keyboards).
Night Shift started out in Birmingham in 1973. Originally a rock three-piece, they switched to reggae after an encounter with the late Laurel Aitken in 1978 as Reality. At the time a fresh reggae wind blew over England, bands like the Specials, UB40 and the Selecter were formed and Reality got swept up in it. Jamaican born singer/guitarist Robert Green was the main songwriter of the band and easily adapted to their new style. The original three-piece was augmented by saxophone and keyboards and soon they developed their own exciting and innovative sound.
With a mixture of old and brand new songs the band still manages to create their own sound, rootsbased with an ever growing manifold of influences, like rock and soulmusic. The songs are a unique blend of social awareness, strong melodies and catchy hooklines. The maturity of the band is evident in their performance, which is an energetic and uplifting experience.
