“Bristol roots reggae stalwarts, Henry & Louis, follow up their label’s recent Rastafari Way hit by re-releasing their 90s sound system circuit classic Too Late on 2 Kings Records (2KR12 010). Featuring the unmistakable voice of Prince Green, this super heavyweight driving rhythm and apocalyptic vocal is now offered on 33rpm 12” with two previously unpublished dub versions.

At the time of publishing, Prince Green – a well-known Bristol character during the 80s, 90s and noughties who returned to Jamaica in 2010 – has lost contact with 2 Kings, and label founders, Andy Scholes and Jack Lundie are hoping this re-release can help them reestablish contact.

Originally a drummer and percussionist, also known as Drummie, Prince Green sessioned for Bob Marley back in the day, and lived for a time in the Tuff Gong’s Hope Road residence. His gruff tones and haunting, prophetic lyrics combine with Henry & Louis’ bass-driven steppers arrangement to make Too Late a must-have UK roots standard, once championed by Aba Shanti-I and other sounds”
