Viceroys - Love Is All - Sankofa Blackstar

One of the longest serving reggae vocal groups - along with the Wailing Souls. The Viceroys have worked with Coxsone, Winston Riley - but the real succes came with Linval Thompson and the 'We Must Unite' set. Linval's Roots Radics sound more or less broke Freddie McGregor and should have taken The Viceroys into the big time - it didn't happen. Even a better promoted second album for Linval Thompson on CSA didn't click. This self produced set is the same sound again, and is a remarkable work - great songs full of reasoning and culture - its incredible to think that such a set could be unrelased for such a long time - but that's the reggae business for you - more mystery than history as Willy Williams would say.
