About this item

U Brown’s "Repatriation" album includes 8 previously unreleased bonus tracks by Dickie Ranking (aka Snagga Puss) including a sweeeet-ass set of dubs that's instantly got Kickin' P snaffling a copy into his section. Released in '79, it sees the production venture into that cleaner, 16-track format that would dominate the eighties.

With Sly and Robbie and the Revolutionaries, plus a host of other JA talent, it's a stupendously strong set which perfectly displays U Brown's inheritance of influences from U-Roy, Big Youth and I-Roy.

Originally released on Hit Sound, Burning Sounds have now taking extra care at re-releasing this amazing reggae collection on beautifully pressed 180g vinyl, with the bonus tracks included on an equally well manufactured 10" 8 track EP. Superb!
