The top of the Reggae Albums chart greets some familiar faces, as UB40 featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey debut atop the list dated March 17 with A Real Labour of Love.
Here’s the interesting wrinkle -- there are actually two different groups known as UB40.
Ali (Ali Campbell) and Mickey (Mickey Virtue) departed UB40 in 2008, while Astro (Terence Wilson) left the group in 2013. The three record and tour under the name UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue. Meanwhile, the band the three gents departed continues on as UB40.
