Jah Roots - Gone A Foreign 7'' [199x Duke Original Pressing]

Fierce digi roots tune inna Waterhouse vocal style. Produced by Jah Roots in the 80's but released in the early 90's, and then reissued by Deadly Dragon a few years ago. Only 2 other tunes were recorded on this riddim, a combo with deejay Biggie Ranks called Clean Up Your Kingdom, and also Rolex's Tell Me Teacher. All conscious tunes naturally, this track speaks of strugglas immigrating ah foreign in search of a better living. While aimed at Jamaicans here, it holds so true on an international level. The original 7'' is definitely a rare and hard to come by record for digi lovers out there!
