The Rastafarians - Orthodox

I just found this out-of-print album from a great new bit torrent site, Reggae Traders. Roots reggae from 1981. Positive vibrations that are perfect for a hot summer day, just like the way I like it.

Back in early 80s, The Rastafarians were based in Santa Cruz, California. The rumor going around the city's Christian churches was that The Rastafarians and their entourage had occupied a Baptist church on Seabright Ave. and held Rasta worship there every Sunday morning, smoking huge bowls of their sacrament and singing their praise to the Lord backed by a neighbourhood-leveling bass downbeat. A friend of mine told me that one Sunday morning he drove by the church and the Rastas had build a huge bonfire in the middle of the street and they were all outside dancing around it, dreadlocks flying.



  1. Are you selling this?

  2. Hi Amir, No I'm not selling it. I only have an MP3 copy. But if you're interested in a trade or something let me know! Thanks!
