Ali Baba

A tough mix of John Holt’s Ali Baba straight from an old Dubplate thanks to the mighty Deadly Dragon Sound. This tune has been played to death in it’s various incarnations over the years, I always think I should be tired of it but I’m not, quite the opposite infact and this dubplate cut is an extra special treat.
