New Black Roots LP - Son Of Man (Soulbeat/Nubian Records) out now..


Black Roots - Son Of Man (Soulbeat/Nubian Records LP)

Black Roots were one of my favorite bands back in the mid-80s. The original lps were real classics and they were stunning live, with several members sharing lead vocals. When they played Newcastle in '86 (supported by King Volts) the Riverside Club rocked to the foundations - one of the best nights there ever. So the news that they'd reformed in 2012 came as a welcome surprise. Son of Man is the third studio set since they came back together (7th studio album all told) and leads on nicely from Ghetto Feel (2014). A strong set of conscious reality songs with typically melodic and warm live roots rhythm tracks and a crisp, no-nonsense horn section (Winston Rose, Henry ‘Matic Horns’ Tenyue & Patrick Anthony Tenyue). Their best album in 30 years.
A who you son of man, where is your heart....

Rasta Living - One-Drop Mixtape 2007

Rasta living Mixtape 2007. Returning to the SiamRootsical back catalogue.... Positive livity. Massive B's Jah Love Riddim is a real killer as is Gibbo & Errol Thompson's Hard Times. I-Wayne's deeply insightful Rasta Tell Them All The While is classic roots. Other riddims include RastarRocking TimeNotorious and Sweet Sop. Jah Cure & Fantan Mojah's Nah Build Great Men was an instant classic. Strength Of A Lion by Chrisinti is also superb.
