ID please two heavy old roots tunes...

Postby Digiman » Fri Jan 14, 2005 10:19 pm

1. Very strange mystical roots tune with cool bass-line, about 6 mins, lyrics "Zion is my home..":

2. Heavy 1drop roots tune:

Any ideas ?

No 2 is:
Rising Son / everyone should have a home / new flower 7"

Was around on a repress a couple of years ago, but is probably hard to find now. Reggae Revive had it, btw.

Check out the exceptional dub cut on 'African Rub A Dub' (Studio 1) LP

Great Studio 1 sounds.

thanks guys that was REALLY bugging me, appears I have two seperate recordings of this tune, one as the above and it also just came out on a bootleggish 12" white label - as George Dudley / Open The Gate, the B side had Mittoo tune on it that's a cracker - 'Mash Down Babylon', which was recorded in Canada. Worth getting, literally out maybe as little as 3 months ago.

Re : Mash Down babylon - it's a shame they didn't include the synth version as well as the dub as i think it's the best version. Anyone agree??
