Tony Benjamin and the I & I Band UK roots reissue

Postby drwatts53 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 6:11 pm

Just spotted this on EBay (I have no connection with this release):

"FIRST TIME REISSUE IN 38 YEARS. THIS ALBUM HAS SET A BENCHMARK FOR THE CURRENT UK ROOTS AND CULTURE SCENE OF TODAY.
STAND OUT TRACKS LIKE MARIJUANA, DRESS UP YOURSELF AND MARCUS THE PROPHET ARE RATED AMONGST THE TOP 100 STEPPERS TUNES OF ALL TIME, AND STILL PLAYED HARD BY SOME SOUND SYSTEMS AND RADIO DJS ALIKE.
THE INITIAL VINYL RUN WAS SCARCE, WHICH MADE THE ALBUM DIFFICULT TO FIND. THE HARD CORE COLLECTORS WERE COMMANDING BIG BUCKS FOR A MINT CONDITION COPY MAKING THE DEMAND EVEN STRONGER.
MUSICAL LINE UP INCLUDES GEORGE 'FLEA' CLARKE (KEYBOARD), ERROL FRANCIS (DRUMS) AND JUNIOR EBANKS (LEAD GUITAR) OF REGGAE REGULAR FAME.
THE PROJECT WAS ORIGINALLY RECORDED AND MIXED IN 1980 AT EASY STREET AND GOOSEBERRY STUDIOS IN LONDON, UK BY ENGINEER SUPREMO LLOYD TYRELL.
NOW LOVINGLY RESTORED AND SOON TO BE AVAILABLE, PENCILLED IN FOR A JULY RELEASE DATE - THE DISC WILL BE MANUFACTURED ON HIGH QUALITY 140GSM WEIGHT VINYL WITH THE SLEEVES LITHO PRINTED ON INDUSTRY STANDARD ART BOARD. LYRICS INCLUDED!!"
