    Bomb LP!

    The legendary tune “Play On Mr. Music” from a documentary film “Roots Rock Reggae” comes alive. This compilation celebrates some uncommon gems from the greatest golden years of the Black Ark Studio and Lee Perry’s works.

    “Play On Mr Music” by the Upsetter Revue featuring The Heptones, The Congos and Junior Murvin, had long been the Holy Grail for roots reggae connoisseurs, until Rocka Shacka issued it on a 10-inch EP. The result of an impromptu studio jam (captured on celluloid for Jeremy Marre’ s Roots Rock Reggae documentary in May 1977), the track celebrates the undeniable pull of Perry’ s musical artistry, with both musicians and onlookers enhanced by the uplifting qualities of a marijuana spliff.“Milte Hi Ankhen” by Sam Carty is a full vocal cut to the oriental dub known as “Bird In Hand” which was included the dub master piece “Return of Ape”. You can also enjoy the unreleased dub mix of the deep rasta tune “Rejoice Jah Jah Children” by The Silvertones, also the unreleased take of Carlton Jackson’s big tune “History”, an irie roots rock version of Curtis Mayfield “People Get Ready” by Junior Murvin and the soulful Perry’s vocal on “Soul Fire”. LP comes with free colour poster and sleeve notes on both vinyl & CD by David Katz.
