Sylvan White “Africans Unite” w/version

The criminally neglected roots singer Sylvan White, who recorded a number of singles in the late ’70s and early ’80s for the Freedom Sound and Cornerstone labels, is bittersweet to listen to.  Sweet because the songs are so consistently good, and bitter because White recorded so little and so little of what he did record is commercially available. The rhythm track here is provided by the Soul Syndicate and mixed at King Tubby’s studio.  White’s voice and his emotional delivery are flawless.  This tune is top ranking.
