2014 repress. LP version. "Originally issued in 1983, African Roots Act 3 is basically the dub counterpart of Sugar Minott's Wicked Ago Feel It album (also out in Rhythm & Sound's Bullwackies reissue programme). Lloyd Barnes' key collaborators here are Sugar himself and stalwart Jackie Mittoo, with the core of his studio musicians drawn from the group Itopia. Subdued and hypnotic, musically more sparse than its predecessor, African Roots Act 3 offers the same trademark combination of Wackie's originals and classic Studio One rhythms, nodding again to The Heptones ('I Hold The Handle', 'Love Me Always'). Worth buying for the version of 'Real Rock' ('the rhythm most known with the song 'Armagideon Time' by Willie Williams or covered by The Clash) alone and a must have for the fans of Sugar Minott, the Wackies label in general and for all lovers of dub reggae."
