Originally only a hundred or so 7”s were pressed of these tracks so it is great that Dub Store have made this deeply spiritual music available to the world!

5. In Crowd - Milk and Honey

Credited to the backing band the In Crowd, but in fact composed, played and sung by legendary producer Clive Hunt aka “Azul” aka Lizzard.  We did a two hour special on Clive Hunt on the Oslo Reggae Show which can still be heard on our mixcloud.

6. Joe Higgs - vineyard

Joe Higgs famously taught the Wailers to sing harmonies, as well as many other well known reggae groups. He never achieved the international success he really deserved. A great singer and as can be heard here, a great and poetic songwriter.
