Spring Roots Eternal

In previous years I've marked the arrival of Spring with a cross-genre Spring Sun Soul mix (>>back catalogue of those can be found here<<) - this year I've pulled out some roots tunes that have that spring spirit...new beginnings, the natural world reawakening, sowing new seeds, horizons moving forward, spirits lifting, all gentle but unstoppable. A few vocal pieces here but mainly instrumentals, accompanied with some live dubbing off the mixer.

Wishing everyone the best in this new season and sending a salute out to Lee Perry on his birthday, born March 20, right on the start of the Persian new year - great time for a new year i think....two Upsetter productions included in honour.
