I don't think I remember this coming up before, but I don't think I have ever seen that record. And it seems to be four tracks on one side with a blank B side. I have seen some similar promo records coming from Island before but never that one and never a one sided release. Odd.

Do you actually have this record? Is it Aswad roots style dub, or more produced? Are the two main tracks available on LPs?

one love

hi bill

i asked before in this thread http://bloodandfire.co.uk/db/viewtopic. ... ally+exist

yes, i have this record. think i bought in on ebay some years ago. "back to africa" is found on the album "aswad" https://www.discogs.com/Aswad-Aswad/release/1235595 sounds like the same mix to my ears (the vocal one). the other two dub mixes can also be found on the album "aswad" as vocal versions. i can't find these dub mixes officially released anywhere other than on this white label though.

b side has an endless test beep tone

Interesting. Never seen those myself.

Now the raiders disk, do those five songs happen to comprise one side of the LP or are they in mixed up order vs the real LP?

The Gregory one sounds kool too. These I take it were versions from various 12" and 10" singles?

one love
