U-Roy is now back with Talking Roots, his fifth collaboration with London's Ariwa Sounds. Produced by none other than the Mad Professor himself, the release guarantees a fat, dubby sound, based on fine instrumental contributions by the likes of Horseman, Sly Dunbar, Lloyd Parks, Steel, Dean Fraser and the Roots Heritage Brass. A well-balanced choice of new tunes and felicitous make-overs of older hits, like Sister Aisha's Wait A Minute (here called 3 Minutes Of Talk) and The Tide Is High, ensures an interesting listening experience for both occasional Reggae listeners and down-to-the-bone Roots fans.The latter will especially enjoy the social  commentary so typical for this well-informed artist in Repatriation which touches on the questionable immigration policy of Donald Trump, also displayed in the exceptional cover-art-work. There, you'll find an illustration for Bitter Nut as well, the lyrics of which talk about the cola nut consumed in West and Central African countries as a traditional stimulant.
