Little Roy Children of the Most High
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Pharos
Little Roy recorded several reggae classics during the ‘60s and ‘70s, re-surfacing in London in the mid-1990s to cut the Longtime album with Adrian Sherwood and More From a Little with the lesser-known Lion outfit. His latest effort comes from Pharos, a label rekindling London‘s live reggae scene. The strongest numbers are those that are least familiar: the censorious "Membership Card," "Bomazee," and "False Talk" are all delivered in Roy‘s distinctive style, and, although the few cover tunes that round out the set pale by comparison, the album is suitably competent overall.
