First released by Virgin Records in 1977, the ambitious ‘Ice On Fire’ transformed the Jamaican Roots sound of leading vocal trio, the Mighty Diamonds into a sophisticated blend of Soul, Funk and Reggae, courtesy of legendary New Orleans based R&B producer, Allen Toussaint.

This grand fusion of styles resulted in one of the most of memorable and compelling albums of the late seventies, with original numbers mixed with impressive covers, of which ‘Country Living’ ‘Get Out of My Life Woman’ and ‘Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley’ stand-out.

Despite receiving mixed reviews at the time of its original release, the album’s considerable merits have been increasingly appreciated by fans and critics, with the LP consistently among the most sought-after in the Virgin’s considerable Jamaican music catalogue.
