Following the great success of BBE's 2023 reissue of Remi Kabaka's 1976 lost masterpiece 'Son of Africa' comes yet another neglected and hitherto-hidden slice of pure Kabaka goodness: 1980's 'Roots Funkadelia'. - While the 1976 album was recorded at Island Studios London, roots was recorded and mixed in L.A. in the midst of a golden period for the Motown studios, and the sheer quality of the mix shows in spades. An unexpected but welcome bonus is the appearance throughout of the 'mean machine'- Motown artists the commodores' brass section alter-ego.
