During the period of this 1984 recording, Sugar Minott was arguably the brightest star in reggae music world-wide: this one’s for those who like their Sugar unrefined, raw and uncut.
Four songs and their dubs — lovers, bubblers, rockers, and well-charge dub, with great playing and Sugar brilliantly focussed throughout — originally a 1983 picture-sleeved ten-inch on his own Black Roots imprint.
A brilliant series of Donovan Germain sevens, this week: moody, revolutionary-minded, beautifully-crafted. Great Sugar.
Co-architect of Black Victory, Sugar himself takes the mic for its last release, a driving sufferers cliffhanger about bent cops and going on the run, with Bagga Walker, the great Studio One bassist, in full effect.
