U-Roy- I Can't Love Another

U-Roy has floated away.

Dread In a Babylon has long been my favorite reggae album, and no, it's not because of the cover photo, smart aleck. U-Roy sounds like an utter lunatic throughout the 1976 release, whooping ecstatically, spouting Rastafarian doctrine and ranting incomprehensibly. Anchored by classic roots reggae, Dread manages to be both lighthearted and deep beyond measure.
