Following The Maytals' signing to Island Records in 1973 they recorded and released their fourth album From the Roots. Leaving behind their early ska days they had yet to settle into the slower tempos which were used more common in the mid-'70s. As a result, music here generally gallops, and vocals fall in line. As heard on gems like “Koo Koo,” “Got To Feel,” and “Pee Pee Cluck Cluck,” the Maytals' lyrics tend mostly towards love and the pursuit thereof. The recording quality is outstanding for the era, and some of their most explosive tracks can be found on this record.

Available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on orange coloured vinyl.
