Rod Anton & U Roy – Natty Rebel







U-Roy come together for this maxi single with a new cover of the original Wailers’ song « Soul Rebel » (1970). Recorded as a dubplate combination for Positive Irie Sound some years ago, the track is based on Marley’s lyrics and melody sung by Rod and U-Roy’s original toasting. This cover is one of U-Roy’s most famous. The first version had been released in 1976 with The Gladiators singing Marley’s vocals. Now this brand new version is available on a fresh riddim produced by Gabriel Bouillon at his Soul Nurse Recording Studio. He played the guitar, the bass, sang backing vocals, recorded Cedric Piromalli on Rhodes, The Ligerians’ Drumer François Lattouf on Drums and mixed the main track.The Melodica version is played by Art-X (ODG) and the two other Dub versions are mixed by Bongo Ben and Natty Bass (ROOTS RAID). This maxi single is a real dancing bomb offered to you as a bridge between two generations of Reggae artists: Rod Anton, the upcoming Roots singer and Daddy U-Roy, the original Godfather! Enjoy!
