"Ohm Records Inc. is pleased to announce the official reissue of  Errol "Flabba" Holt's - Yes, Yes, Yes and Sweet Reggae Music... two of the most powerful tracks ever recorded by Flabba Holt and the Roots Radics. Originally released as two separate twelve inch singles in 1979, both of these prolific songs are now available on one record. The tracks were some of the very first from these musicians as the Roots Radics band and these recording sessions were a turning point in reggae history. The Radics had joined together as one unit just a year prior to recording these songs. Most of them having seceded from other groups and / or producers. The outcome from these gentlemen in following years would change and sculpt reggae music into what is today.
The root of "Yes Yes Yes" is based off of a song originally written and recorded by Bo Diddley in 1955 called "She's Fine, She's Mine". Later  Bo Diddley would work with Willie Cobbs to release his song "You Don't Love Me" in 1961. The words gained popularity in Jamaica when Coxsone Dodd and Studio One released the track by Dawn Penn also under the name "You Don't Love Me" in 1967. "Yes, Yes, Yes" was Flabba's incredible and dreadful twist on these classic lyrics with his signature thundering bass lines throughout putting his stamp on the tune and making it his own. "Sweet Reggae Music," speaks for itself in the title and was created with the same incredible musicians. Errol "Flabba" Holt at the helm, backed and assisted by Eric "Bingy Bunny" Lamont, Lincoln "Style" Scott, Noel "Sowell" Bailey, Dwight Pickney, Christopher "Sky Juice" Blake / Burth, Noel "Scully" Simms, and the late great Gladstone Anderson. Enjoy this limited edition and beautiful double sided release with the extended dub / instrumental versions.
