is a really great sampler of Jamaican Reggae
Music as it was played in the late 1970's,
Almost a decade worth of music on one
album, and every track has his own story,
relevance and niceness. Good for friends,
connaiseurs, music lovers and dj's. Mmm...
Someone did a very good in compiling this
Many different styles are presented to
the listener, all of them based around the
production skills of Mike Brooks.
Long parts of stricktly drum and bass
with vocals on top. Early dancehall or Rub a
Dub style Solid drum and basslines!
Deep Roots freaks you to every corner of
your mind because of the deep phasers,
accompanied by lyrics sung from the heart.
Straight up Rockers in the classic
Revolutionairies Style: militant and
forward. Guaranteed to make everybody move
and Groove To The Riddim.
And if that doesn't convince you, simply
take a look at the All-Star list of
vocalists and know they are all backed by
the classic groups that CREATED the music we
now know to be a part in our souls.
When you take a look at the list of
friends with whom Mike Brookes made the
vibes during the period of 1976-1983, it
becomes clear that the word "just"
not only a mere understatement, it's totally
Barry Brown. Don Carlos. Jah Lloyd a.k.a.
Jah Lion. Errol Dunkley. Man oh man, this
really rocks hard!
