Big, big one - just listen to that intro already! - from Michael Rose, now back in circulation on a nice 7" - still sounding so sweet, packed with all that uplifting, freedom-searching roots music goodness.

here's some additional info from the heads behind the reissue -

"Recorded early in 1976, apparently ‘Born Free’ wasn't immediately released in Jamaica, but went straight to the UK market as a 7’’ on the obscure ‘Boss’ label, to be reissued as an Attack 12’’ shortly after. While production details are somehow puzzling, with British sound operator Fatman sometimes credited among the producers and the riddim re-surfacing within Yabby You’s catalogue decades later, what remains undisputed is the King Tubby’s studio stamp on the mix, emphasised by the raw cymbals on the B side. Michael Rose’s incredibly inspired voice floats over a stripped down roots rhythm singing timeless lyrics of freedom that will inspire Black Uhuru’s hits Willow Tree and Peace and Love in the Ghetto."

... This one's a must for all foundation roots crew out there...
