Description

Four cuts of the same rhythm that was popularised by Ken Parker with 'Girl Asheba .Ken Parker cut his first sides for Studio One and it's a pity he didn't record more tunes in this tough Radics style as his relaxed vocals work perfectly on this pinned down rugged rhythm. Jah Stitch leans into the the mic with reflections on 'Life in the Ghetto' 'This one goes out to all the cats and kittens of the ghetto' Insightful and a nice counter to the Ken Parker cut. Knowledge handles the first cut on the flipside with an authentic slab of Rema roots. Not the greatest singer but always a bright argument and real delivery from Knowledge on 'Rasta don't take bribe'. A ghetto philosopher that was widely respected in the community. Sadly Knowledge passed away in 2011. He had been part of the group also called 'Knowledge' that was formed in 1974. The last cut is a version mixed by engineer Barnubus at Channel One. Rugged roots produced by Roy Cousins. Comes in a recycled hand stamped sleeve.
