Track Listing / Description

Rock A Shacka hit the spot with this third release in their Studio One foray. Kicking off with Al (Campbell) and Freddie (McGregor)'s other Holy Grail; Born A Freeman - the beautiful Freedom Justice & Equality was finally released on Yep Roc's From The Vaults Vol 2 a few weeks ago - then straight into Burning Spear's immortal Door Peeper cast here as a "discomix" folding seamlessly into a saxophone piece from Cedric 'Im' Brooks.  Freddie returns with his late seventies masterpiece Homeward Bound, a different mix to the original 45, reprised in dub, again a previously unreleased mix, as one of four CD only bonus tracks. Cedric Brooks is again represented by a previously unknown horns cut to Judah Eskender Tafari's roots classic Jah Light, a unique dub mix to this is included as another bonus track. Other highlights include an alternative version of Lennie Hibbert's mystical Chinese Beauty, the obscure Plea My Cause by Main Roots and a track entitled Heart Breaker by one Cool Operator, an obvious nod to Delroy Wilson but in actual fact the legendary studio engineer Sylvan Morris flexing his actually rather fine and indeed Delroy influenced vocal chords.  Its him singing on the Sound Dimension obscurity Lover's Serenade, by the way.  More please!
