TUNE OF THE WEEK #39
I ROY – FORWARD ON – STEADY RECORD COP.
Joseph ‘Jo Jo’ Hoo Kim produced deejay cut Forward On aka Forward Yah from 1975 finds I Roy toasting in inspired style across Fence Dub, one of Channel One’s finest ever riddim by the Revolutionairies. The riddim is an adaptation of Jackie Mittoo’s Studio One instrumental In Cold Blood that actualy improves on the original. The wicked full horns cut titled Speak Easy is featured on the flip side – later included on Pressure Sounds’ 2001 compilation Maxfield Avenue Breakdown (Dubs And Instrumentals 1974-1979).
