This is the album that started it all. Cock Sparrer has ''Shock Troops''. Rancid has ''Let's Go''. The Aggrolites have ''Dirty Reggae''; and off the back of this album emerged a scene embracing that term itself, that would grow to be bigger than the band could ever be.
''Dirty Reggae'' is now in-and-of-itself a category of Reggae that has taken the world by storm over the past decade-and-a-half.
15 years after the original release of this pinnacle record, Pirates Press Records and Axe Records have teamed up to repress ''Dirty Reggae'', and make it widely available to all those who haven't been able to find this classic for a long time!
Nobody could've guessed at the time, preparing an assembly of musicians to support classic reggae artist Derrick Morgan, that the project would lead to a band that has truly changed the face of Reggae.
As with other classic albums, from the moment the needle touches down, the music takes the listener to a special place; in this case, one that has and continues to inspire others to build upon what this integral band has started.
This 'standard' version brings this truly important record back into press, in a way that can be accessible to a whole new generation of Reggae (and vinyl) lovers across the globe.
