    Surely one of the best sets by Ewart Beckford, better known as the man U-Roy - and the mighty Aggrovators will kill you dub-wize with some assistance by the crowned King of Sounds & Blues, the un-matched King Tubby's.
    The original DeeJay-Daddy thrills with cuts to Linval Thompson's "Don't Cut Off Your Dreadlocks" (Joyful Locks), Johnny Clarke's "Rock With Me Baby" (Rock For I) "Too Much War" (Too Much War) and "Hold On" (Don't Worry) as well as Cornell Campbell's "I Shall Not Remove" (I Shall Not Be Moved) and "I Am The Gorgon" (Gorgon Wise).
    The Aggrovators' dub-works include gorgeous cuts to John Holt's "The Clock" as well as the classic "Rainy Night In Georgia" and "Mean Girl" while the original vocals of the extra-brilliant "African Roots" and "Double Cross" remain un-revealed at this very moment.
    U-Roy, King Tubby's & the Aggrovators at their very peak ina flying cymbals-stylee. Don't miss.
