10 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is the album that truly introduced U-Roy to the world. The pioneering toaster unfurls his loose-limbed, melodic flow over a bass-heavy batch of straight-up roots rhythms harking back to his earliest soundsystem days. The dub touches on tracks like "Natty Don't Fear" add an extra layer of atmosphere, but it's U-Roy's charismatic vocal presence that dominates, whether he's dispensing Rasta-themed messages ("The Great Psalms"), bestowing inspirational visions ("Silver Bird"), or promoting more earthly pursuits ("I Can't Love Another").
