Sublime spiritual roots, late Studio One style (though ‘I Am The Ruler’ Ellis aka King Rocky cut some top-notch rocksteady there, too). It would have fitted well on the Studio One Disco Mix compilation. Murder.
‘There’s no meat on the bone… All our heads gonna roll… Every step you make, man, you’ll slide…Them a locust — feedin — upon I and I flesh. The more them get the more them want.’ Ghost Train To Skaville.
For all its omissions and puzzling choices, still well worth having, with several previously-unreleased tracks, and a couple of killers.
Killer. Same school of dread, taut funk as Swell Headed. ‘I man no say what next man say, I like to prove things for myself… I man don’t like to get mix up.’ Tough dub.
