Some vocal counterparts to these rhythms were – Weep And Wail, dub to I See A Black Man Cry by Derrick Spence. Gunman, dub to Me And Jane by Bingy Bunny. Radicfaction, dub to Free Up The Black Man by Rising Fire. Infore’a, dub to Keep It In The Family by Bingy Bunny. Road Block, dub to Him A Natty Dread by Bingy Bunny. Babylon Armed is on the "You Should Have Known" riddim. Changes, dub to Black Cinderella by Horace Andy. M16, dub to Street Lover by Bingy Bunny, and Judgement Time which is a version on the classic “Vanity” riddim played on dozens of reggae songs

Fantastic album!

That's what I have on the album as well, jj, with the addition of Nicodemus – Outside Lover on Judgement Time and also Physical Fitness by Nicodemus on Weep And Wail.

:lol: At least the originals will always have a certain feel to them and keep the value better than the reissues.

Who mixed it? Ernie B and other sites say Scientist, but the back cover says Crucial Bunny. I guess it would be pretty clear by listening; I haven't heard it yet.

The first 5 tracks on this album were included on the Scientist Meets the Roots Radics cd reissue a little while back on the Sound System label.

They were included as 5 bonus tracks on the cd version.

Sounds more like Bunny's mixing to me (which is good, as I have to say I get bored pretty quickly by Scientist).

And nice job on the reissue -- maximum bass pressure!

Cheers guys for the riddim ID's, only ones I spotted were the Rising Fire one and of course the Black Cinderella and Vanity/I'm Just A Guy rhythms. Just picked this up at last, sound quality very good on this one too after some quibbles with the first two releases, well done Ohm!
