I got this CD from a guy named Alon back in the 1990's. Alon lived in New York.  He needed to repair his motorcycle so he was selling his reggae collection on eBay. I had a good job and money so I was buying. After a while we felt like we knew each other. He mailed me this CD. I bought more records.  After a while he stopped posting albums on eBay and we lost touch. I tried emailing him after 911 but I didn't get any response. Maybe he had changed his address.

If you are reading this Alon thank you for the CD. It's absolute crucial listening. And if you are someone who just stumbled upon this post... if you like Roots Music... download this CD.

Producer: Jack Ruby

From the cover:

ARROWS: Many groups have originated out of Ochi Rios. e.g. Burning Spear. Lots of them are totally unknown until a militant Record Company that is anti corporate decided to give the Black Breadrin a break in this time. The group Arrows is a perfect e.g. Arrows features the great Burning Spears brother Elias Rodney. Many record companies refuse to touch their songs. But we at Clappers defend Black Militancy, Seen!

SKULLS: Black Slavery Days was a big hit on the Ochi Rios sound system scene. Sounds such as Soulsville Sounds System used to feature it in their set. Skulls lead singer, Tony Thomas worte all their tunes. Tony used to sing with the original Justin Hinds & the Dominos group.

THE ORIGINAL SURVIVORS: Lead vocalist Jah Blue Evans began his reggae career in the original Burning Spear group. Their sound is typical of what this album is about.
