Total Roots

Only Roots records continue to build a very tidy catalogue of 7″ single reissues with five more quality releases; three Geoffrey Chung productions and two associated with Harry J. All reissues come in replicas of their original labels and are available now.

  • Corporation Of Love – Give Thanks And Praise/Version (Love)
    A 1978 Geoffrey Chung production. Original issues go for a couple of hundred pounds so this will be a welcome reissue.
  • Allen Jahsana – Time To Remember/Version (Jah Sunbal)
    More from Geoffrey Chung and another in demand tune presented on a replica of the original label.
  • The IQs – The Love We All Need Today/Version (ARC)
    The third and final Geoffrey Chung production with the IQ’s (AKA Michael Curah).
  • Ras Midas – Let The People Go/Dub (Jaywax)
    Originally issued in 1980 on Harry J’s Jaywax label on both 7″ and 12″. This reissue credits Harry J as producer where as the original issues credited Fane Opperman “for the Universal Life Church INC”.
  • Generation Gap – Music From My Mind (Roosevelt)
    A Harry J production on a repro Roosevelt label.

  • For thirty four years I’d busted sweat on trying to find out who did the tune give Thanks and Praise (version) because I only heard it once, I had it on tape and the tape snapped just where the track info was inserted. Thank you Only Roots Reggae. I can now rest easy. Roll on pay day!
