The ROCKERS film soundtrack album was originally designed as a two record set. This top notch reggae radio program plays several tracks cut from the actual single lp release like “Honeyball”, “Waiting For The Bus” & two versions of “Satta Amassagana” plus the unadorned “Jah No Dead” with just Burning Spear and the sea. Prince Lincoln & The Royal Rasses get the royale Midnight Dread Radio Mix for their crystal ball prediction “Mechanical Devices” as you thumb through yours. Toots knows “Gola Silver” calls for ‘share up, split up & throw out’ for the opener, Dee Sharp & Johnny Osbourne sing for more love, Eric Donaldson’s for warm love so Bullwackie haffe “Mash It Up”. Misty In Roots know “Mankind” not so kind after all (like Rusty Zinn recently sang) as they go deep alive and dread on March 31st, 1979 in Brussels. “If you’re not conscious of the present, you’re like a cabbage in this society”-Misty In Roots:

The Mount Salem Church sings “The Water Is Power” in another stunning ROCKERS soundtrack outtake which sets up The Mellow Larks seven inch praiser “Hallelujah Time (Time To Pray)”. Soon Roy Richards sets a wicked tempo, Roy Shirley emotes like no other winner. “If your window pane ain’t rattling, the bass ain’t up enough!” adds host Doug Wendt in this extraordinary radio show with constant steppers so you never break your stride, just like the line-up of Jamaican stars in this vintage wide angle ROCKERS soundtrack poster:
