Track Listing / Description

We have strictly limited stocks of this 2009 project from Greensleeves, who approached The Zulu with the idea of getting him to select tracks that reflected the type of reggae music for which his sound system has become famous over the decades. The right type of tune being, of course, heavyweight roots and culture of the sort that proliferated during the late seventies and early eighties, the period from which these fifteen selections originated. There’s probably nothing here that the hardcore Shaka follower won’t already know back to front, nevertheless this is a solid collection of those tunes that Shaka ran back in those days, though naturally he would have owned different raw dubplate cuts to run on his classic Garrard 4HF record changer. Of all the legendary seventies UK sound men, Shaka alone carried on playing the warrior style steppers and thunderous basslines from this period to new generations of multi-cultural reggae lovers. During the mid-eighties a scene grew around the Dread made up of those disillusioned with the growing trend for hedonistic dancehall, preferring instead to listen to heavy, meditative dub and roots music. Out of this scene grew what we now know as the modern roots scene, a self-supporting network of like-minded souls. The music showcased here and the setting in which they were played, provided by Jah Shaka, is the inspiration for them all.
