Tony Tuff - Presenting Mr. Tuff

Tony Tuff (born Winston Anthony Morris) started his career in 1969 as a member of the vocal trio The African Brothers, along with Sugar Minott and Derrick “Bubbles” Howard. When the African Brothers split up in the mid-1970s, he pursued other work outside music until he returned as a solo artist in the late 1970s, with the album “Tony Tuff Meets Errol Schorder”, and self-productions including the “I’m So Glad” single on his own Winston label. He worked with Yabby You on the “Tony Tuff” album in 1980, and worked with Sugar Minott again on the 1981 album “Presenting Mr. Tuff”, released on Minott’s Black Roots label. Now that LP has been reissued, although it’s not a straight reissue, by France based Deep Roots Reggae Shop. The tracks “Love & Unity” and “Groovy Situation” are dropped and replaced by dubs to “Working Man Song” and “All Who Gone”, while “Rock Rock” is here as an extended 12″ mix.
