Tapper Zukie – Tapper Roots
Virgin Records 1978



You know they say a dog is a man’s best friend. It is true, I had
two dogs in my life and they really were my best friends. The last
one is still visible in the header of the Global Groove. There
was this moment however I was not amused, my first dog ate a
part of the sleeve of this record. I took a clean sleeve from the
web to put in the file for you. Maybe that’s why I never posted
this album until now. It is a killer record, a must have if you don’t.
From 1978, on Virgin Records, sheer beauty..

Je weet dat men zegt dat de hond de beste vriend is die je hebben
kunt. Het is waar, ik heb twee honden gehad in mijn leven, eentje
is nog altijd zichtbaar in de header van de Global Groove. Er was
echter een moment dat ik minder blij was, mijn eerste hond, hij
heette ook nog Rasta, heeft een stuk van de hoes van deze plaat
opgegeten. Verdorie, daar baalde ik van, misschien heb ik deze
plaat daarom nog nooit gepost. het is een killer die je zeker in je
collectie hebben wil. Ik heb een schone versie voor je in de file
gestopt. Uit 1978, op Virgin Records, super plaat..

    He he, I looked at the cover and thought “looks like a dog has eaten it” (I have experience of this), and then I read your text. My own cover is in very much better condition, but my record is a typically poor Virgin Front Line pressing. Tapper Zukie is a very much under-rated artist.

    My dog chewed up a the cover of Magnum Band’s -La Seule Difference (Adoration), the one with Liberte, luckily the vinyl wasn’t hurt.
