Plucked straight out of the 1970’s reggae scene comes I Roy and his pioneering release Gussie Presenting I Roy. Combining that classic swing backing track we’re all familiar with when it comes to reggae alongside solid vocals from the man himself. This record is a reissue that is available on orange vinyl LP on ‘Music On Vinyl’.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 25th July 2017
The album will appeal on a number of levels -- it is ostensibly a re release of Presenting I Roy -- but it features about thirty first rate rare groove bonus cuts to the original release. The opening track, "Red Gold & Green" is so amazing that I could listen it over and over again. To those of you who define and limit their perceptions of Ken Boothe by Everything I Own, you should think again -- Boothe recorded a number of early to mid period Roots Rockers styles -- In particular, the confident black nationalism of Black Gold and Green, included here.
