RR: Junior Ross and The Spears are another great Jamaican Roots group that have been nurtured under the guidance of fellow Jamaican, producer and singer Tapper Zukie.Who not only gave the singer and his band their name but recorded, produced and released their records on his own ‘Stars’ imprint label. Junior Ross (Clifford Palmer, b.7 Sept 1953, Kingston, Jamaica) grew up alongside his brothers Frankie Jones and Roy ‘Soft’ Palmer, who in turn had entered the music business alongside future roots singer Price Alla . Prince Alla had formed a group called ‘The Nazarines’ with Roy Palmer and Milton Henry, so music was all around Junior Ross and he would soon follow in their footsteps and start recording some of his songs. This album you have here had its initial release in 1992…We have added to it various dub versions that were b-sides to the singles and extended recordings again produced by Tapper Zukie. So you have the Junior Ross and the Spear’s classis album and its related musical accompaniments all in one place and sounding better than ever… We hope you enjoy this classic roots set….
