Here we have one of the oldest tapes I have around – dates back to the good days at Better Badges when we’d just got our Alpha hi-speed cassette duplicator. The great thing about this was that it was a magnet for rare and unreleased material, such as this, brought in by Steve Jameson – who long worked the counter at Rough Trade. I don’t recall details but he arrived from some studio (Street Level?) in a high state of excitement with this one containing brand new mixes of the Twinkle Brothers, Undivided Truth, Prince Hammer, and more importantly, Jah Shaka’s masterpiece ‘Kunte Kinte’. When I played it on Streamola even Ras Kush, who has got every single thing that Shaka has done, asked for a copy. Enjoy!

One thing that became apparent, as Streamola gained more listeners, was that many, particularly in North America, were not well cognizant with the works of the mighty Zulu Warrior from Peckham. In spring of 1999 Ras Kush, of Black Redemption Sounds of Praises, took it upon himself to emancipate and educate the net populace with a full on tribute to the man himself. It is one session, split into 3 parts.
