The HeptonesThe Greensleeves Reggae Classic get a re-issue first time on CD for this 1979 Channel One album and is also re-released first time as LP-vinyl, featuring no less than six hit 45 singles, “Repatriation Is A Must”, “Black Man Memory”, “Can’t Hide From Jah”, “Every Day Every Night”, “How Can I Leave” (Guiding Star Riddim) and “Good Life”, along with a well charged lick-over of Bob Marley’s “Natural Mystic”. The Revolutionaries backed, Naggo Morris fronted “Good Life”, built on the success of The Heptones UK number one album “Better Days” (recently reissued by VP/17 North Parade as part of ‘Deep Roots Observer Style’ 4CD box – Niney The Observer / VPCD4192) and was a quick early seller for the fledgling Greensleeves label receiving a positive response from both public and press.
