Black Roots, hailing originally from St Paul’s (Bristol) have been around for a long time now and, after a mid-career break, are still producing great roots reggae music. This new digital-release single with its strange but effective chord changes and classic reggae sound is very much in the tradition of this great band. The single is taken from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Take It’ (due for release in all formats on 2nd November 2018). The question ‘How Long’ is posed in relation to how long will mankind have to wait for its liberation and it implies references to both biblical prophecy and to the present-day troubles of the secular world in Africa and beyond. The band are touring in France in November, beginning with an album launch party in Paris. Good luck to them with this strong release.
