U Roy - Now album FLAC

The material might hark back to the '60s and '70s (as do some of the vocalists working with him here), but there's still a very conscious and very joyous vibe about the whole album.

Real Name: Ewart Beckford. Profile: Reggae's greatest DJ, U Roy (or Hugh Roy, born Ewart Beckford, 21 September 1942, Jones Town, Jamaica), also known as The Originator, became famous in the late 60's and early 70's with a stream of smash hits whose appeal has endured ever since. He was the prime innovator of 'toasting' (wild, exciting vocal improvisations) and rapping over 'versions' of popular songs remixed by dub music pioneers such as King Tubby.
