Great Roots Reggae LP by Jah Lloyd akaPat Lloyd Francis a.k.a. Jah Lion)that was self-produced on the own His Majesty label. These tracks sound like they're Backed by the Roots Radics and Mixed by Scientist - but that might not be the case. Some of it also has the sound of older backing tracks here like "Soldier Round The Corner" and "Lego Natty Hand" which uses the riddim of Horace Andy's "Ain't No Sunshine" which was also used for the Heptones song "Drifting Away". "Flood Victim" is about the disastrous floods of June 1979 caused by months of heavy rains in Western Jamaica, which claimed 42 lives and affected an estimated 160,000 people at a cost calculated around $60 million USD. "Everything Crash" is one of those perennial laments about rising food prices and the marketplace practice of "marrying" items into forced "package deals" in order to increase sales: the vendors won't sell you rice unless you buy cornmeal with it.
