Early 70s Roots & Culture Session II

 Early 70s Revival Session II
Rastfm #LoveReggaeMusic Show 61
More oldtime roots & culture vibes many again ripped from pre. Productions from Coxsone, Upsetter, Harry J, Observer, Glen Brown, Keith Hudson, Phil Pratt, Derrick Harriott, etc.
Mostly from that era but I couldn't help throwing down a couple of wicked versions from later in that decade...

Continuous mix. 3hrs.

 A classic 45 from Niney - Leggo The Wrong by Astley Bennett (aka Roy Shirley) is a big highlight, what a voice! Sound Dimension's Congo Rock is a Studio One classic as is Glen Miller's Love & Understanding. Bunny & Ricky's Bushweed Corntrash is an old fave of mine and is surely one of the most poignant songs about a ganja drought ever made!

Mad Professor, Jah Shaka, Aba Shanti I, The Disciples, Bush Chemists, Zion Train, Jah Warrior, Fashion, Centry, Gussie P, Conscious Sounds, The Rootsman.... Lead with the BASS..

STEP IT UP ROOTS PEOPLE...



This ya one takes me back to the heyday of that scene... The Dubclub in London, Bradford's Dub Me Crazy sessions, Messenger in Edinburgh & massive all-nighters at the Scala Brixton, Leeds West Indian Centre, Bristol, Gloucester & nuff other places around the country. Full houses every time. While I don't often play this kind a music nowadays I used to a lot to back then. It was the nu-roots ting exploding outta Yard that fully drew my attention back away from the UK dub vibes, from around the time Garnett & Luciano made it big and Buju dread up.
I continue to go to the odd sound system dance and it sounds good to me still sameway...

Continuous mix. 3hrs
