Freddie McGregor - True To My Roots LPSKU: BSMC50158
The current album for Reggae's veteran singer makes it finally to be released as LP-Vinyl. Originally released in late 2016 in the digital and CD formats only, the longplayer has nothing lost of its freshness and high quality music production.
Veteran singer with a great new album will be finally available as LP in Europe! - Freddie McGregor entered the year 2016 at the top of the New York and South Florida charts with his latest single "What You Gonna Do". The track was also on heavy rotation in the UK, featured on the latest Strictly The Best 52 & 53 edition and was the start of the promotion for the new longplayer "True To My Roots". The renown singer and artist Freddie McGregor shares that he was inspired to show that good music is still being made in Jamaica and artists like him continue to engage with new and old audiences even in a far more competitive environment - in summer 2016 he had several big festival gigs in Europe to proof it and played songs from "True To My Roots" which is finally available on CD in Europe. Longtime fans of 'Di Captain' will not be disappointed and younger audiences will appreciate the authentic sweet, rootsy sound from this class act. The album brings tunes on the classic Studio One 'Heavenless' riddim (made popular by Dennis Brown's track "Your Love’s Got A Hold On Me") and is released on the Big Ship Music label (via VPAL Music) and is produced by Dalton Browne, Cleveland Browne (of the legendary production duo Steely & Clevie) and Lloyd Campbell.
