U-Roy – Natty Rebel,Virgin Records 1976

U-Roy, front

Yesterday afternoon, my son and I were listening to some reggae
from the old days. I am so happy he has the same hobby his dad
does. He told me he’s going to Germany, to Europe’s biggest reggae
festival, Summerjam. We checked the festivals line-up and found that
among a lot of newer acts, Burning Spear and U-Roy are a few of the
older ones. My son didn’t know the music yet so we sat and listened
to some. Now here’s a U-Roy album for y’all from 1976. Take this and
be sure not to miss Dread in a Babylon as well.
By the way, better check my son’s blog too.
I hope you like’m, have fun.

    Some years back my son, who’d had never shared my fascination for Congolese music, went backpacking around the world with his girlfriend. I made mim a tape of Empire Bakuba tracks, and he loved it. Seems like the heat of Indonesia suddenly made it fit into place.

    Good to share this stuff – many thanks
