Description


Description

A fabulous copy of this cool "Roots" tune from Junior Delgado, starting life as a flipside; rising up into cult status from DJ attention. Now so very wanted, it recently triggered a record dubious repress on Jamaican Upsetters label. After gaining a huge following from the 12" & 7" presses from 1977.

This 1978 solid centre UK press, benefits from precise mastering and high quality vinyl. A beseeching social commentary on the evils of slavery, cradled by a male harmony chorus. Resulting in an effective and seamless slab of crystal clear "Roots" that has endured for over 40 years.

Do not overlook the flipside not issued in Jamaica at the time. A delicious falsetto led Roots with full vocal-group harmony.

Two great sides - this copy is in astonishingly clean, condition!

We are unlikely to be able to match its flawlessness in the future.
