About this album

BLACK ROOTS - AllDay AllNight – NRD01
Released Monday 27th January 2014 on digital download.

Over the next few months Nubian Records will be making more of the Black Roots back catalogue available on digital download. ‘AllDay AllNight’ is the first of these releases to be rolled out. This release will be followed by 2 more between now and the end of June 2014.

This album was the fourth Black Roots release that first hit the streets on Vinyl and Cassette early in 1987. More recently Bristol Archive Records rereleased a ‘deluxe’ version in 2011 on CD featuring bonus dub tracks.

This album, recorded in Cardiff in 1986, was the first studio collaboration with Neil Fraser aka The Mad Professor. And over the next few years Mad Professor was to work on another 2 albums with the band.

In this work, Mad Professor uses his production skills to take the band in a new direction, that ‘live feel’ that punctuates the early releases ‘Black Roots’ and ‘The Frontline’ is gone. The sound in this album is fuller, deeper and more mature without compromising the band’s unique roots feel that is punctuated by powerful and harmonic vocals. Mad Professor’s work as producer is made easier by a powerful horn section, brought in by the band and used on several tracks, led by Vin Gordon, the legendary trombone player who was living in Bristol at the time, and assisted by Mike ‘Bammie’ Rose on Tenor Sax and Flute.
