  1. A bit too rocksteady to my ears (I prefer later reggae) but always interesting to hear how reggae emerged from a mix of rock and carribean rhythms.

    Thanks for the share Dear Spirit

  2. Thanks so much for getting this into my collection - it's been a fave all year long - love the organ and can't beat that bass groove
