As most everyone knows, these are some of the wickedest rockers rhythms to ever be
created, as the Revolutionaries (with Sly and Robbie) never sounded better.
The liner notes state: “ These recordings were not intended for general release, but were
“specials” originally intended for exclusive use in the Jamaican sound systems. Eventually
much of the material was released in Jamaica on a very rare limited edition lp...Among the
classic Channel One riddims reworked by Hugh Roy on this album are “Right Time,”
“Why Me Black Brother,” “I Need A Roof,” “Have Mercy” and others by the Mighty
Diamonds. He also conquers the “Ali Baba” riddim by Jackie Edwards and the “Dress

“The Lost Album” has 12 tracks and only clocks in at 36 1/2 minutes, but after only one
listen, you’ll know you'll need to get it.
