from the book "junia reggae" by junior walker
after playing those songs a man came to me and gave me a pile of records and said: "bob send this for you". he gave me seven or eight records he was selling in his store mostly from associate labels and his friends. he would have heard from what i was playing that i had most of bob marley's and wailers records already, ones i had previously bought from selvin. later on the album "rastaman vibration" was released with the track "roots, rock reggae", it was years after his death i put together the fact of the lines that said "play i on the r&b, i want all my people to see, we bubbling on the top 100, just like a mighty dread". "rainbow country" already had "hey mr. music (junior walker), you sure sound good to me" so he re-worked it to include those words as if saying at last he got a chance to show his neighbours who were oblivious to the strides he was making and i came and gave them a preview by "playing him on the "r&b". in those days news wasn't as global as it is now, bob would do a show abroad and months later you might see an article wit a photo and that was it.
