Various Artists Reckless Breed: Reckless Roots Rockers
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Wackies-Basic Channel
This minimalist dub album, one of Bullwackies' most subtle and elusive releases, first surfaced in limited number in 1977, although its origins lie in sessions cut at King Tubby's studio with the Soul Syndicate band circa 1974-75 (before New York became Wackies' permanent home). Oriented towards the presentation of bare-bones rhythms, tracks such as "Underworld" and "Reckless Roots" are dub counterparts to material that surfaced in vocal form on Reggae Goodies Vols. 1 & 2, while the wonderfully named "Explosure" and "Creation" feature extreme spatial balancing, plus Don Carlos' exclusive roots vocal, "Prepare Jah Man."
