Also known as: Satta

With all this roots reality running the show it seems natural for Abyssiniansold classic to reappear. Capleton's Raggy Road, Morgan Heritage's Live Up, cuts from Anthony B and Sizzla and the rest of the new roots clan are all mashingup Babylon system.

This sample is the unmatched (by far) original. The tune was cut at Coxone's StudioOne in 68-69 by Abyssinians, the first tune they did as a group. For some reason Coxone "put it pon shelf", as the expression goes. The reason was surelynot, as is common these days, to cash in later. Either he didn't realise thecommercial potential of the emerging roots music or he just didn't like the tune.After two years, some negotiating and a lot of saving Abyssinian managed to by the tunefrom Coxone. It's a bit strange that they didn't rerecord for some other producerinstead, and do as the current roots artists, i.e. produce a inferior version.
