"...do as the romans do... " rockers tune -id

Postby Catchavibe » Sat Aug 05, 2017 4:20 pm

Yesterday I was at the reggae Geel festival in Belgium, for the Xth time. Great vibes and I especcially enjoyed the 18inch corner in the woods. Channel One sound was playing and played a lot of classic roots tunes form the 70’s and 80’s, before they stared playing their militant steppas tunes. War from Wailing Souls, Give I Fi I name from Pablo Moses, Mash down babylon from Winston Jarrett/Jackie Mittoo, etc … .

And another bouncing rockers tune form i guess late 70’s,or early 80s with lyrics going ‘do as the romans do etc, with a great fat 70s rockers sound including nice organ, and the singer sounded like a lot like barrington levy, so could be him.

So, little information but anybody an idea about this tune?

Thanks Already!

Great tune, BMC, but its not the one i am looking for. :wink:

Its got that typical 'fat' organ in it, from late 70s, early 80s.

Barrington Levy or another singer who sounds very much alike...

Played by channel one on the 'word sound and power' soundsystem...

Sugar Minott's "Rome" has a line like that.
