Take a Ride Riddim / Truth and Rights Riddim

General’s Ranking: starstarstarstar

Take a Ride back to 1968 when Al Campbell first recorded over this riddim with C S Dodd at Studio One. It inspired Johnny Osbourne’s Truth and Rights whose message carries on to today. Somehow only a few of the very popular 2005 Massive B relick are available for purchase online but luckily this gem can still be downloaded for free in its entirety through Mediaz Empire: Truth and Rights Riddim CD

Big up to VP for getting these “digital singles” out on itunes and amazon. Many traditional record labels are still slow to get their products to market. Let’s hope more labels catch on soon.
