Black Roots began their musical journey in 1979. They are based in the St Paul’s area of Bristol England.

  • Black Roots Ghetto Feel review by Rebel Base With the release of their 2012 album 'On The Ground' Black Roots proved that even after more than thirty years they were still alive and kicking, but this brand new 'Ghetto Feel' album is in a league of its own. This is roots reggae as we like it best and if we hadn't known better, we'd have suspected this to be a never released gem from the 1970s or 1980s. Combine an almost perfect instrumentation with inspiring roots lyrics and vocals and you get 'Ghetto Feel'. It's hard to choose favorites from the track list of 'Ghetto Feel', but we'll opt for 'Lonely Journey', the soulful title track 'Ghetto Feel' and closing track 'Stuck Pon Waff ', a song about the decline of the British Empire that in light of the upcoming Scottish referendum on independence couldn't have been more up to date. Roots gem you shouldn't pass up! Published 13 September 2014 - http://www.rebelbase.be/reviews/detail/black-roots---ghetto-feel-soulbeats-records
