Album Notes
Originally Recorded in 1991 and were believed to have been lost in a flood, the studio where it was recorded just found them in storage. Recorded on a 2 inch analog machine you can here the warmth and passion in the music and lyrics. A few others have been found as well and will be released as well! Ras Marcus Benjamin is one of the very few if not the only Dub Poet in American Reggae Music. I truly hope you enjoy it as much as I look forward to releasing it worldwide. Look for "Dub Talking" a Nyabinghi Dub Poetry CD and Digital release coming out spring of 2013.
