I don't know if all of the tunes they recorded saw the light of day, but this 2006 Trojan release is the most complete:

On Auralux release of "Upsetters 14 Dub Blackboard Jungle" there is 3 extra tracks from the same sessions as African Roots.

It's amazing how popular this album is. If there is a copy in print it invariably tops the best seller list at Ernie B's - it's still selling (albeit in small quantities) so I hope the guys get some money from it. It must be the most popular reggae album outside of those that have been mainstream hits like Marley etc.

@Mark T - the thread is about "from the heart of the congo" feat. 2 african singers that somehow stranded in jamaica during the time "heart of the congos" was recorded (the one you are referring to). there was only a hand full of this recordings released at that time...
