Between 1983 and 1998 UB40 produced three Labour Of Love albums, bringing hits such as Eric Donaldson’s ‘Cherry Oh Baby’, Lord Creator’s ‘Kingston Town’ and Johnny Osbourne’s ‘Come Back Darling’ to a new, global audience. They also topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with their reggae cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Red Red Wine’. Twenty years later Campbell, Astro and Virtue are revitalising the concept by exploring the tunes of a later golden age, A Real Labour Of Love sees the group explore the songs that defined reggae in the Eighties
