Day 114 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Cultural Roots - Every Man Has A Right
Cultural Roots was one of the few vocal quartets recording during the onset of the dancehall era. With bass heavy rhythm tracks produced by Donovan Germain and later Junjo Lawes, you would have thought that the band would have flourished but popular tastes during the early 80s dictated less emphasis on culturally aware subject matter and they unfortunately didn't achieve the success they deserved. Today's track "Every Man Has A Right" was taken from their 1983 Greensleeves release Hell A Go Pop, produced by Junjo and featuring the legendary Roots Radics, is a fine example of deep roots in the dancehall age.
