Rest in Peace the master... U-Roy.
He was the first reggae music I ever heard... a tape, one side Jah Son of Africa (which had just come out), and the other LKJ, Forces of Victory (same. Both 1978). Mind blowing stuff for a little 16 year old Culver City surf rat in the era of Foreigner and Foghat.
Spent hours trying to figure out what he was saying Only to realize some of it was scat singing....
"Do not imitate 'cause I originate!"
The best. I love David Kilgour's slogan- "a guitar god for atheists".New Zealand 80's rock. Not Butt rock.
