It's been a long journey from the day in Nigeria when Dig This Way Records found, inside an Alpha Kuffa - Messiah I (1990) sleeve, a blank test press of the Yangaman Bob LP with a little Top Rank sticker on it to the day the label met the producer, the great and brilliant George Dureke, who gave them the test presses of the remaining unreleased albums from his Top Rank label, till to the complicated audio Restoration handled by Colin Young and Bassi Maestro. After two years of hard and intensive work it's finally arrived the time for this compilation to be ready and see the light. Eight unreleased digital roots tracks made in Nigeria in the late '80s, never released or pressed on vinyl. Surely it includes some of the most interesting reggae music made in the roots land call Nigeria. Now ready to be spread across the world. The harder the battle, sweeter the victory! Features Yangaman Bob, Mysta Wey, and The Force. Audio from original test presses. Cover artwork by Legno. Handwritten printed insert. Edition of 500.
