Roots Underground

Roots Underground has been played on NTS in shows including Blackest Ever Black, featured first on 10 October 2013. Songs played include High Times.

(1) Roots Underground, whose album Tribesman Assault appeared first in 1977 (and was reissued in 2003 as both LP and CD), can easily be confused with another, much more recent reggae act from Jamaica, Rootz Underground. I left the description of the group written with the "z" untouched, see no. 2 below.

For the original Roots Underground who issued only one album (a.f.a.i.k.), Tribesman Assault, see

(2) Reggae / Rock / Dub

from, Kingston, Jamaica.

the "s" is backwards in the word roots…
