Version City Rockers – “Darker Roots ” – [Antifaz]

At first glance, you might think this is just another compilation of classic reggae tracks. But look closer, because it’s actually a brand-new album featuring vocal contributions from reggae legends like Glen Brown, Sugar Minott, Sister Nancy, Yabby You, and others. Recorded at Version City studios in New Jersey between 2001-2003, DARKER ROOTS features the NYC-based Version City Rockers band in collaboration with several of their musical idols and is guaranteed to keep that classic 1970′s roots vibe alive in the oh-five. Personal favorites include Ranking Joe bongdiddling his way through ‘Africa,? Little John’s heartfelt musical psalm, ‘Give Jah All the Praise,? and Congo Ashanti Roy’s meditation on the horrors of 9/11 in ‘Why Dem a Galong So.’ Melancholy yet uplifting, this is a real roots revival.
