"Tapper Zukie was high on a list of artists that Richard Branson in 1978 had in mind to sign to his new Reggae label Front Line. The mission was to sign the cream of the reggae crop when the Virgin record boss went down to Jamaica with a group of Reggae minded people, included in that group was Johnny Rotten, singer of the very recently disbanded group The Sex Pistols. The result of which would be a two album deal between Tapper and the label. The first release also in 1978 was the album Peace in the Ghetto and this release Tapper Roots."

Angered that an Upsetters album was released without his involvement, Perry issued his own version of the album back home in Jamaica using the same Trojan album artwork but with totally different songs and a new stickered tracklist on the back.

The Sound Systems of Jamaica were always the people’s radio station. Tunes were tried and tested in the lion’s den of the dance to see which songs rose to the top and became the most popular. This was the litmus test and the first step to a tracks commercial release to capitalise its hotness on the circuit. Then the Dub/Version hit big in Jamaica in the early to mid 70’s this was also the case and many times the version cut of a track would even prove more popular than its vocal counterpart. Jamaican Recordings have compiled some great 70’s dub plates that rocked the Sound … Read more
