2015 repress; originally reissued in 2008. The mid-'70s in downtown Kingston was a heavy time both musically and politically. The climate defined the music; dread was everywhere. During this time, Tapper Zukie was establishing himself as star on the DJ roots circuit, and would become a favorite with the UK punk scene. He was also gaining recognition for his production talents, showcased on the 1978 compilation Roots Man Connection. This expanded reissue includes 15 fine cuts, with singers such as Horace Andy, Cornell Campbell, and Prince Alla, as well as such lesser known singers as Ba Wisdom and Putto Black. Of course, no Tapper Zukie collection would be complete without the man himself dropping some lyrics, so there are a couple of cuts from him, too, including a sound-clash with Jah Mikey. Also includes tracks by The Seekers, Errol Dunkley, Junior Ross, The Mighty Diamonds/Tullo T, Frankie Jones, and The Vibes Tone.
