Bristol Reggae Explosion 3 hits the shelves

Bristol Archive Records has released the third instalment in a series of classic reggae from the city, entitled Bristol Reggae Explosion 3 – The 80’s Part 2.

The 15-track album, of which 11 are previously unreleased, is arguably the strongest of the three-part collection and has a strong leaning towards the roots side of reggae.

It includes the 1979 track “Jah Praises” from REVELATION ROCKERS - the band that went on to be TALISMAN - as well as rare cuts from JOSHUA MOSES, COOL RUNNINGS and DAN RATCHET.
