ROOTSMAN will be more than satisfactory for
various people and for different reasons.
For the DUBheads, because of the magnificent
mixing by Mad Professor. For the lovers of
Full Lyrical works, because this is the best
album from one of Reggae's top vocalists.
For the Conscious people, because all tracks
are based on a conscious subjects.

releases, definitely the personal favourite

only a conscious man can ride an upfull

Really, this one you just can't refuse!
