Unfortunately this link is no longer available and even more unfortunately I do not have a copy of this file! Grrrr... If anybody has a copy he found here, please let me know by posting a comment to the newest entry to this blog, so I can update this post for everyone and myself. I am not too keen on ripping several records again...
The second volume is from 1988 and features among others Reggae legends Lee Perry, Bim Sherman and Prince Far I, three of the great voices of Reggae and Dub.
This LP has more electronic flair to it, yet still keeping the trademark ON-U sound of Reggae and Dub plus that extra bit of weirdness/charme/genius, that makes these songs stand out.
