Track Listing / Description Full Track Details: Side A - Brent Dowe - Righteous Works  / Version / Side B  - Prince Alla - City Without Pity / Version

Crucial and cutting 12” repress circulating from the Freedom Sounds / Archive imprints. Side A features a raspy and raw vocal from singer Brent Dowe over the highly revered ‘Righteous Works’ lyrics. Trainspotters will instantly recognize the Earl Zero lyrics within this track. According to various sources Brent Dowe actually wrote the lyrics, however Earl Zero was the first to voice them, and then Dowe’s recording coming afterwards. Fantastic cut of it, tuff drums and weeping and wailing cries at the beginning of the track. Melancholic, downbeat roots full of darkness. But through the darkness you can still see the light. Don’t sleep on Side B. Vintage sufferer’s roots courtesy of one of the greats, Prince Alla. Originally produced in the 70s, it’s a delight to see it pressed up again. The bassline can be described as a creeper, menacing and purposeful, with the deeper notes really driving into the underground. The vocal encapsulates roots from that era, lyrics pointing to harsh realities and drums providing the heartbeat. Essential roots food for all and one.
