Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
The combination Starkey Banton & Nereus Joseph and Vivian Jones have both voiced an excellent roots tune across a slow burning roots one drop, which is laid by UK's renown Heywood brothers aka Mafia & Fluxy and mixed by Ruff Cutt member Bubblers. Combining the forces of the ever conscious deejay Starkey Banton and great singer Nereus Joseph proves a winning formula. "Blackman Time" is a notable cultural tune which fully showcases the unique talents of both deejay and singer. For almost two decades by now Vivian Jones has proven to belong to the UK's best singers. No matter what kind of tune he delivers, Vivian's songs are always worth hearing and the wonderful "Rastafari Is My Life" is further evidence of this statement. On the flipsides one is treated to a nice dubwise version. The production work comes from Kenny Edgehill and Nereus Joseph and is first rate!
