Notes

I-Roy (aka Roy Reid) must have one of the richest voices in vintage dub and this compilation makes an excellent showcase of his warm, languid tones. The collection brings together I-Roy’s Bunny Lee-produced tracks, which proved to be among the best-known of all his material. Included here are upbeat dubs like ‘Black Is My Colour’, ‘Come Down De’, ‘Hypocrites’ and the immensely soulful ‘Cow Town Skank’ whose recording is interspersed with disembodied concrete sounds from the streets. For newcomers, this ranks as an essential primer of I-Roy’s work, and makes for a handy one-stop-shop for his Bunny Lee recordings.
