Roots Touches

Back with a rootsy bang, as Just The Vibes is a fine reggae collection on the excellent Moll-Selekta label I had criminally overlooked until recently. Not so strange that, as Brooks himself always preferred a position in the background. Although he was definitely a talented singer, Brooks rather worked away quietly in the producer's chair, putting the finishing touches to roaring roots music by the Revolutionaries, the Mighty Diamonds, Barry Brown, and his pal Jah Lloyd, to name but a few.

Mike Brooks - Holy Jah Jah
Mike Brooks - Money Is Not All
Jah Lloyd - Natty Bid Goodbye
