got this for Xmas. Surprisingly solid, had no idea Toronto had a dub/roots scene in the 70s

I had no idea any of those guys cut tracks in Canada. I'll have to keep an eye and ear out for this disc.

yeah, that disc is good.

i can never listen to roots reggae in the fall and winter, but i'll dust-off that disc in the spring.

seems like it was a pretty low-key/obscure scene, label basically run out of a dude's basement studio for no money w/no distro.

This track stood out to me:
