Talisman - Takin The Strain

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Now, I meant to post this a few days ago as a bit of a Peel tribute, but i've been having a few problems with blogger so it's a bit late.
For quite a few of us of a certain age group, reggae has formed a large part of our listening experience. Probably since The Clash first covered Junior Murvin's 'Police & Thieves.' Listening to Peel as kid turned me on to so much great reggae. Misty In Roots, Culture, Burning Spear etc.
Now, you know I like to keep it local. So from Bristol I give you Talisman, with 'Takin' The Strain'. Great roots reggae, sounding very similar in style to when Bad Brains go roots.
1984 Embryo Records.

I've only got the first Rhythm-ites LP left now. Which I intend to post at some point. Thought you might have liked this being a West Country lad. :)
