STUDIO ONE ROOTS 2
Soul Jazz SJRCD114
Another excellent release from Soul Jazz, which complements and augments the 2001 release of STUDIO ONE ROOTS (Vol.1). Previously unreleased tracks include the superb Sleeping Trees by The Saints, Talawah by The Galdiators, Full Time by Cedric 'Im' Brooks and LK Strut by Karl Bryan. Any compilation which includes Devon Russell's Jah Hold The Key and Larry Marshall's Run Babylon is sure to get my endorsement - buy without hesitation.
The set is produced to Soul Jazz's usual impeccable standards, complete with cardboard slip case and informative booklet written by Steve Barker. (Nice to see a credit to Rob Chapman - just a shame they couldn't get the title of Never Grow Old right, though).
