Love Rasta

Here's a great tune from an almost-forgotten singer by the name of Gideon Jah Rubbaal - I'm posting it in the hope that it might inspire a few people to go out and get one of the reissues that came out last year. He was a seriously conscious artist who put out a handful of releases on his own Jah Rubbaal label in the mid to late seventies before fading from view.

You can check out the CD (called 'Free Us Now') at any number of places - it's well worth the effort.

Also the third single ever released in the UK by Greensleeves. Nice tune, very much in the mould of Pablo Moses to my ears; pleasant, but not earth-shattering. Just dug out my copy from the vaults in which it's lain for nigh on thirty years.
