Herb Daly, John Nevin, David Yusem and Cedric Angila are the members of
Santa Cruz based reggae band Root Awakening. Their debut album "Roots Tonic"
consists of 7 finely crafted vocal cuts and three dubs.
Most tracks are inna "roots and culture" style. The three dub tracks
miss the excitement one expects from dub.
Root Awakening recaptures the feel and sound of the 70's, with original
riddims and sweet harmonies. Real instruments, and the added horns section
make this album quite enjoyable.
