Here's some early U Roy. A couple cuts from his first LP, Version Galore, along with the riddim sources, two songs by the Paragons, "Tide Is High" and "Wear You To the Ball". The video below is from the same period, and was the title song of the LP. I'm not really in the mood to explain who U Roy is, or why he was influential. If you don't know, shit, you're on the internet already. Use it.
