Presenting this little forgotten pearl by Roots Uprising recorded in Miami, Florida in 1979. Led here by the multi-skilled musician, singer and producer Ted Greaves aka Asha-T (son of legendary and popular Teddy Greaves, a West Indies cabaret entertainer). Ted Jr was born in Jamaica to a very diverse musical family and first cut his teeth singing with his father at hotel resorts in Montego Bay and on luxury cruise ships for tourists with his siblings. During the mid 60s, the Greaves family moved to the Bahamas to further Teddy Senior’s career, and not long after Asha-T accompanied by his brothers decided to migrate to Miami. After years rehearsing in the studio and with the help of his brothers (Donald and Errol Greaves who played on many important Soul Syndicate records) the Roots Uprising outfit was ultimately formed. “Family Tree” was originally released in the US only and on the murky Alwa label on both 7" and 12", and as with so many obscure releases of the day, proper dues were never rewarded. TRS Records is pleased to present this beautifully fitting and hard roots tune and give it the proper release it deserves.
