LP version. "Innocent Youths was the first long player released on Jerry Brown's Summer Records imprint, hitting the emerging Toronto reggae marketplace in 1977. In 2008, the original LP is virtually extinct, a highly coveted and extremely rare piece of Canadian reggae history (often described as the northern answer to Lee Perry's Black Ark). For the uninitiated, we are talking heavy bass, drums, reverb, echo, roots vocals, keys, guitar, percussion, and Brown's wild style touch behind the controls. By 1977, Earth, Roots and Water had developed into an engaging live entity as well, based around the talents of Adrian 'Homer' Miller (vocals), Anthony 'Base' Hibbert (bass), Colin 'Zuba' Suban (drums), Matt Shelley (guitar), and Tony 'KB' Moore (keyboards). Both a sonic and visual force, the charismatic youths soon found themselves performing in and around the Toronto area, opening up for The Police and The Stranglers while extending the UK-born punk/reggae love affair to North America. In 2008, Light In The Attic Records along with Jerry Brown and Jamaica-Toronto series producer Kevin Howes (aka Sipreano) have decided to share this vital bounty to reggae fans the world over. Innocent Youths contains the complete studio album lovingly remastered from the original Summer Records master tapes. Over 30 years ahead of its time, this maverick material showcases the breadth of Earth, Roots and Water. Dig in..."
