November 24, 2006: Little Roy


This session featured the sounds of Little Roy, an underrepresented artist in the world of roots music. At the top of the show, I start off with a riddim that he did the original vocal to, a track called Tribal War, that was recorded with Lee Perry in the early years of the Black Ark. After that we get into a variety of other related tracks, many from the two excellent compilations put out by Pressure Sounds [www.pressure.co.uk]
