Product Description

English born, internationally-rated singer Lloyd Brown has become a consistent critical favourite for his annual and increasingly biannual album releases. He could have comfortably rested on his laurels for the remainder of 2013 following February's well-received New Veteran - released via his own production unit Riddimworks. The same can be said of US reggae producing triumvirate, Zion I Kings, who have already put out a superb Cornel Campbell project this summer. So when Lloyd announced that he and the Kings would be making an album together – a strictly roots and culture record with none of the pop and Studio 1 inflected moves made on New Veteran – the excitement (among reggae nerds at least!) was palpable. Speculation on the sum of its parts would suggest that it be one of the events of the year. Lloyd has been cutting cultural numbers since the 90s but Rootical, his 17th long-player is 100% dedicated to this vein. Atypically, none of his four combination partners hail from the UK. There are no daring cover versions; just original material. The songs are co-written and co-produced with Jah David Goldfine, Laurent Tippy Alfred and Andrew Moon Bain of Zion I Kings who lend bass, keyboards and guitar respectively. With one source of rhythms behind him, this is the musically restless Lloyd's most unified effort thus far.

Roots set from Lloyd Brown for Zion High Records is his most complete, cohesive album for some years and follows his contributions to the excellent various artists LP Jah Golden Throne (also Zion High) last year. Quality, uncluttered rhythm tracks and first-rate musicianship throughout allow plenty of space for the vocals and lend an unhurried quality to the whole project. No trace here of the over-production that characterized some of Brown's more recent Riddimwize releases. Features some vital combinations with Queen Omega, Pressure Busspipe, Jahdan Blakamoore and Yisrael Immanuel.

I-ley recommended. Probably the top conscious roots set of the year.

Back to the Roots of Originality! 19 Nov. 2013
By ATrainEnt - Published on Amazon.com
"Originally viewed as a lovers rock singer, Lloyd was making roots music at least as far back as 1996 with the Saxon helmed Power of Jah on the Prophecy rhythm...

Following his well received 2013 release New Veteran, world-rated UK artist Lloyd Brown has announced his 17th studio album for autumn this year. It's a potentially mouth-watering prospect, showcasing Lloyd the roots singer, featuring 13 songs crafted by the USA's feted production trio Zion I Kings. Rootical includes combinations with Pressure Buss Pipe, Jahdan Blakkamoore, and Yisrael Immanuel [and] Lloyd describes it as containing 'No riddim do-overs, no covers, no Studio One, no Treasure Isle. Completely original lyrics and music.' - Unitedreggae
