Information

Beautiful collection of Royals material containing all their classic early seventies titles including the title track, Ghetto Man, Sufferer Of The Ghetto, Heart In Pain, When You Are Wrong, Promised Land, Peace & Love, Down Comes The Rain and Genuine Way, which features the voice of King Tubby’s brother; Lloyd Ruddock. Their main voice was of course that of their leader Roy Cousins whose distinctive high register lisping vocals raise the material into the rarified upper echelons occupied by the likes of The Abbysinians. Heavier, later seventies titles such as Facts Of Life, If You Want Good and Make Believe is also present. Essential.

Out of this world

André Crasnojan, Sep 12, 2003
I bought this CD last month, and when I heard it I didn't believe it! Mainly the sixth track, "If I Were You", as the great Big Youth would say, "is out of this world"!
In my opinion, every good 70's Reggae fan should have this CD.

Congratulations to Pressure Sounds for your very good work!
