This is one of the best of the many superb Black Roots footlong Disco 45s. It features a superb rhythm, decorated by Sugar Minott's superb vocals as he sings a conscious plea for unity from his heart. Side one's magical vocal trip segues into a slow and sleazy dub version. Side two serves up yet more of this rock steady dubbing. The mix is sublime, tough and loud yet relaxed, capturing a point in time where reggae leaves the 1970s and heads boldly into the 80s. This is Jamaican roots music at its very best. A bonus vocal track Kings of Kings and its version are tagged on to the end of the flip side but for me neither are quite up to the title track's greatness.
