Format: Audio CD
This is a great pair of CDs, chock full of really good roots songs, a fair number of which are dubby extended versions (the tracks were mixed at King Tubby's). Both Prince Alla and Junior Ross are excellent singers and the backing players are superb: e.g. Sly and Robbie, Earl 'Chinna' Smith and Augustus Pablo are all present. If you're into bouncy and heavy rhythms (I feel self-conscious writing 'riddims', but that's what's meant), lovely close harmonies and the odd bit of fire-and-brimstone (e.g. 'too late, too late, mercy gone, judgement come'), look no further ... for a little while, and then (if you haven't already), get B&F's 'Tappa Zukie in Dub', where you can hear mighty dubs of some of the tracks on this set (Tappa Zukie produced the songs on the current CDs).

First time on CD for these two seventies roots reggae masterpieces: Prince Alla's "Heaven Is My Roof" and Junior Ross & The Spears' "Babylon Fall". Blood & Fire have presented the albums here with re-arranged tracklists and with many songs presented in extended discomix version with dub conclusions.

Junior Ross & The Spears' "Babylon Fall" collection features the earliest recordings circa 1975-77, recorded at Channel One studio with rhythms by the Revolutionaries band. The lyrical content of this album is perhaps the most damning indictment of the down-pressive Babylonian system ever; and in the already highly militant era of 'roots reggae' that's really saying something! This album sounds like the soundtrack for the apocalyptic 'end days', and it's either salvation through Jah Rastafari or destruction 'inna Babylon' you face.
"JUDGEMENT TIME", "BOW DOWN BABYLON" and "YOU CAN'T RUN" feature simmering statements of righteous condemnation like "too late, mercy gone - judgement come", "where you gonna run all you wicked men?/ there is no place to hide under Jah sun" and "if you run to the rock/ the rock is gonna roll on you". But the most striking lyrics are in "BABYLON FALL", which prophesies the destruction of Babylon and directs its ire at the Catholic church: "Jah Jah go down a Rome and throw one stone/ It hit Pope Paul and Babylon fall...".

The songs are sung in the classic Jamaican vocal group tradition with Ross (real name Clifford Palmer) taking lead in an expressive, unrefined howl that's full of passion; backed by a fluctuating line-up of supporting vocalists that include Prince Alla and Ross' brothers Tony Palmer and Frankie Jones.
