The follow up to the Yabby You album Deeper Roots is released on Pressure Sounds in late May 2014. It's a 16 track set and has the same mixture of dub plates, alternate mixes and rare 45s as the first album. There will also be 2 singles taken from the album released in late May.
'Sipping I and I Chalice' and version and 'Chant Down Babylon Kingdom' and version are the two 45s. The 'Chant Down Babylon Kingdom' and version are previously unreleased mixes.
Carl Dawkins tells us about Hard Times. Early 70s business with a great vocal.
Memphis Soul Food cooked the Jamaican way. Has a Lee Perry credit but he is most likely not involved. Never the less an excellent 45.
Lee Perry with 'Kimble' on the A side. 'Seeing is Knowing' on the flipside.
Both sides of this excellent 45 produced by Ronnie Nasrallah are top quality. The A side is 'I won't let you go' and the flipside is 'Love me forever'. Big tunes!!
A slower rocksteady track from the Blues Busters on the A side with 'There's always sunshine' the ever reliable 'Maytals' on the flipside with 'Sometimes'.
Classic that was first recorded at Studio One by 'The Willows' comes withe correct version on the flipside. Check the sound samples before you buy as they are JA pressings.
