I have a question about Eastwood's version titled "Roots Rock Reggae". Who is the singer in the song which Eastwood is riding 'pon (the words "black man and white man must live...")?
It seems it is Channel One cut but neither Mighty Diamonds "Brothers & Sisters" nor Al Campbell's "Repatriation".

Michael Palmer's "nah run down bus" and "can't take the fuss" are the same tune, right?

that tune also appears on one of the 'Waterhouse Revisited" comps. titled "nuh run down woman" and it's the same tune as "can't take the fuss" on greensleeves 12"...

the chorus is "me nuh run down woman, me nuh run down bus" (i thought it was 'boss' but i guess it's 'bus')


a KILLER drifter cut not mentioned yet -

ICHO CANDY - TRUE LOVE (CASH BOUND 12" US)

Always thought it's Eastwood himself singing. The singing and DJ parts float almost seamlessly together, the voices sound very similarand the Jacob Miller-like "eh-eh-eh" and "ah-ah-i-ah-ah-i-ah" are featured on both. Don't know for a fact tho, just some observations...

This tune has only been mentioned once in this thread:

C. Hylton "Keep Trying" Black Success 7"

But it's a total killer tune from the early 80's on the drifter riddim. I'm very glad to own a copy, cause it seems to be pretty hard to get hold of.

I also have a tune called 'Drifter' by a guy called Reggae George and a 7" with no label where the chorus goes: "Black man and white man should live up to rockers, oh yeah, ooooh yeah". Anyone know the title of that tune? It's also a wicked drifter cut.

Hmm, maybe you are right Ruffneck about that, maybe it's Clint Eastwood himself but I'm curious about that 7" white label version mentioned by Junior - chorus is almost the same as in Eastwood's version.
Junior, do you remember, was it vocal group or a soloist?

Yes, lyrics certainly looks similar. I'm curious too... if Junior could post a clip of his 7", we would find out for sure if it's the same tune.

The Icho Candy is a nice one. Never heard that Hylton tune, will keep an eye out.

I thought it was just Eastwood on that tune, be interested to hear more info. Will have another listen to my copy later.

i really like the steppers label 12" of african dream,hugh griffiths-its just a shame the press is so bad on every copy and on the flip sista chinna clearly mixed up the books of the bible.

The Clint Eastwood tune is called "Roots Rock Reggae" and that's what the DJ
chats on the white lbl. Junior mentions, so pretty sure it's the same.

Tuff tune but C Hylton is better imo! ;)

If you want to give it a listen, check out the last tune of this mix:

http://firehouse.dancehall.dk/original_rockers_mind.mp3

Concerning the Eastwood tune. I only notice now that Ruffneck had already mentioned the tune. I'm absolutely confident that it's the same one we're talking about. Bad tune, but C. Hylton's is even better. Does anyone know anything about C. Hylton?
