Throughout the 1970s, I-Roy recorded for tons of producers, and eventually began bartering with many of them for cuts of rhythms to voice himself on, as his own productions. Through his popularity in the UK, I-Roy got a deal with Virgin Records to release many of these new self-productions. Tucked away on these albums are this pair of wicked tunes, prime for release on singles, and here they are.
'Fire in a Wire' was originally released on I-Roy's The General vocal and dub double-album, and as a 12-inch single. Here we have the album cut, the vocal, and it's dub, entitled 'Warlord of Zenda' (presumably named after the novel/film The Prisoner of Zenda). These tunes are re-presented on the Royco Inc. label, I-Roy's own original label used in the early 1970's
