Official release of film maker Howard Johnson's legendary Channel 4 history of reggae music series Deep Roots. Originally shown on Channel 4 as a series of six half hour programmes back in the early eighties, nearly a quarter of a century ago, it obviously fails to tell the story from that point on, the fact that there is no equivelent documentary of the music since then is nothing short of a crying shame. However, despite this, and other quibbles, the amount of priceless footage this delivers is well worth the investment. This DVD contains the fifth and sixth chapters; Part 5 - Money In My Pocket, focusses on the Crown prince himself Dennis Brown, his unplugged rendition of Have You Ever is spine-tingling, as are the Mighty Diamonds singing Long Time, Charlie Ace is interviewed and the islands politics are dicussed. Part 6 - Ghetto Riddims, features footage of producer Jack Ruby conducting auditions in his back yard. Essential.
Running Time 100 minutes. NTSC All Region.
