Synopsis

Album Description
Because of the involvement of Lee 'Scratch' Perry, who traveled with and fronted the Terrorists over 20 years ago, and the many tracks with Roland Alphonso of the Skatalites, also from 20 years ago, this is an important slice of reggae, ska, punk, dub from Manhattan in the late '70's. This is an historic document with material that is absolutely marvelous and unique. It puts a totally new perspective on reggae in Manhattan evenings during that period just before Marley was breaking through internationally with 'Exodus' and brought reggae to a new tidal wave. A 2001 R.O.I.R. Records release.

One of The Best
Mike | NY | 07/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After many listens, I've concluded that this is one of the best
cd's I've heard representing Punky/Reggae/Ska in NY in the late
70's/early 80's..."
