Play Me Some Roots Rock Reggae 2011

Play Me Some Roots Rock Reggae. More conscious roots music for 2011 from Yard and Broad. More cruciality from Joggo, Mojo Morgan and Tarrus Riley. Perfect responds to sentencing in Miami with Hold On Buju. Another highlight is Rasta Chant by Jah Over Evil (J.O.E.) - formerly Lil' Joe, recorded shortly before his untimely death from a brain aneurism...RIP. Jahson Ites brings the EZ vibe all the way from Tonasket, Washington.

Riddim like Gorilla (Necessary Mayhem), Nyabinghi (Bombrush), Box Guitar (Tiger), Delly Ranks' Saudi Arabia (Pure Music), Fuss & Fight (John John) I-Love (Rootsdown) and the essential Prisonbreak from Bassrunner.

Brentford Road Roots Part 2 - Studio One

Brentford Road Roots Selections Part Two.
Vocal - deejay - dubwize... Coxsone Dodd kept up with all the musical trends of the time and recorded some devastating roots rhythms right through the 70s into the 80s.
Riddim like the Drum Song, Rocking Time, Satta Masagana, Mean Girl, Conquer Me, Something On My Mind, Door Peep, Heptones Gonna Fight and the excellent Take A Ride/Truth and Rights (both cuts here). All killers. Rare sides from Winston Francis, George Allen, Linval (Linton) Cooper, the Jay Tees and deejay Jah Scotchie.

Continuous mix. 79 minutes.

Thanks again to SELECTOR BRIXTON RAT in Budapest
for so many wicked & hard to find vinyl rips.. Respect mi lion...
