on Nubian Records * Just Released
Here is another heavyweight remix EP from the mighty roots reggae band Black Roots hailing from St Paul’s Bristol.
The song ‘I Believe’, originally released on ‘On the Ground’ (Sugar Shack Records - September 2012) is lifted from this album and given a new edge and sharpness on these 4 mixes. It is a seminal song, one of the most popular off the album so this was a strong motivation to go back into the studio to create and put some different versions out on release. Its lyrics are strong and powerful. They draw on personal experience.
Black Roots sing that ‘life in the system is not easy because it doesn’t cater for I and I but if you believe in the higher power you can still hold your head up high’. Isn’t that the truth! In spite of the fact that the ‘system’ has discriminated against you, that life for you is hard and difficult, that you are powerless and disenfranchised you can still find that inner strength and belief in the higher power to show you the way to transcend this pressure, believe in yourself and live positive.

‘After their last Soulbeats Records release "Ghetto Feel" ... comes the newest Black Roots album, "Son of man". 11 fresh songs, released on this French flagship label, packed with harmonious vocals which carry melodic guitars, charismatic horns and the powerful messages of the band to the world. 30 years after their debut the legendary UK roots reggae band with "Son of Man" show that they are still able ... to make influential and wonderful music!’
Then in a departure from the scripted questions, Mike Jenkins, the film maker, asks the band some more questions that explore some of the reasons why Black Roots perform their unique style of Roots Reggae music.

The song is about a relationship that has broken down, in which the man realises that his partner has fallen in love with someone else and that he feels that he has no choice but to ‘Move On’. How many of us have faced this dilemma in life’s journey?
First released on their debut vinyl outing simply called ‘4 Track Demo 12”’ back in 1981 it was picked up by the legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel and played on national radio. This helped to propel the band to prominence. Then it appeared on their debut album ‘Black Roots’ that came out in 1983. Since it has featured on some re-releases notably on French label Makasound’s ‘On the Frontline’ and ‘In Session’, and Sugar Shack’s ‘Reggae Singles Anthology’.
