Beautiful little forgotten pearl by Roots Uprising. #RootsUprising #AshaT #TeddyGreaves #TRSRecords #TopRankingsound 💎

ROOTS UPRISING "Family Tree" available now! Presenting this little forgotten pearl by Roots Uprising recorded in Miami, Florida in 1979. Led here by the multi-skilled musician, singer and producer Ted Greaves aka Asha-T (son of legendary and popular Teddy Greaves, a West Indies cabaret entertainer). Ted Jr was born in Jamaica to a very diverse musical family and first cut his teeth singing with his father at hotel resorts in Montego Bay and on luxury cruise ships for tourists with his siblings. During the mid 60s, the Greaves family moved to the Bahamas to further Teddy Senior’s career, and not long after Asha-T accompanied by his brothers decided to migrate to Miami. After years rehearsing in the studio and with the help of his brothers (Donald and Errol Greaves who played on many important Soul Syndicate records) the Roots Uprising outfit was ultimately formed. “Family Tree” was originally released on the murky Alwa label, and as with so many obscure releases of the day, proper dues were never rewarded. TRS Records is pleased to present this beautifully fitting and hard roots tune and give it the proper release it deserves. As Asha-T explains, “Family Tree isn’t just about the importance of having roots, but about the deeper connections we seek to know ourselves and where we are going”.

BLACK UHURU "Pain" available now! First formed in 1972, initially as Uhuru (Swahili for ‘freedom’). The group has undergone several line-up changes over the years, with Derrick “Duckie” Simpson as the mainstay. As a unique singer in his own right, Delroy “Junior” Reid had the opportunity to reach a wider international audience when he was offered the chance to be the lead singer in Black Uhuru in 1986. Always a strong follower of Black Uhuru, and with a similar vocal style, Reid elevated the group to another level delivering militant albums like ‘Brutal’ and ‘Positive’. ‘Pain’ is a superb little Digi tune recorded with respected heavyweight Steven Stanley in 1987 during the recording of the ‘Positive’ LP. Later it also appeared on Reid’s own JR Label as “Pain On The Poorman Brain” but with a different mix and listening experience. TRS is pleased to announce the 7″ reissue of “Pain” is available right now. Licensed though Real Authentic Sounds (RAS).

FOXY BROWN "Always For Me" available now! Foxy Brown born Jennifer Esmerelda Hylton is affectionately known as “Jamaica’s Tracy Chapman” after receiving her first introduction to the reggae charts via Steely & Clevie rendition of “Sorry” and “Fast Car”. Miss Brown released her debut album ‘Foxy’ in 1989, which showcased her original songwriting talents and in 1990 scored another major hit with Dancehall single ‘Always For Me’ also released on her album ‘My Kind Of Girl’ through RAS Records and in Jamaica on the Ras Jam imprint, produced by Harold McLarty. TRS is pleased to announce the reissue of this long and sought after Dancehall Lovers single is available now and licenced through Real Authentic Sound (RAS).

EEK A MOUSE "Glamity" available now! Born Ripton Hylton, is one of earliest artists to be described as a “singjay. He adopted the stage name “Eek A Mouse” in 1979, taking the name of a racehorse he always bet on, and the name stuck. The Mouse needs to further description really, with a slew of hits under his belt throughout the early 80’s with too many anthems to mention, his popularity began to wane slightly in the towards the mid 80s. He decided to target the United States with the established label RAS Records led by the iconic Doctor Dread. As a result Eek A Mouse started to appeal to a wider cross over audience and toured extensively and even resided outside of Jamaica for some time. In 1987 the LP ‘Eek-A-Nomics’ was released and ‘Glamity’ was definitely one of the stand out tracks that didn’t stray too far from the Dancehall and was even released as a 7″ single produced by Doctor Dread. Now reissued and under licence, ‘Glamity’ perfectly captures that time of the late 80s, and in his own description where Eek A Mouse was at, bere glam and fame, and certainly no complaints.
