Previously unreleased vocal materials from the master tapes! Eric Monty Morris sings the sufferers' protest song, "Blackman work so hard, but white man gets the money, the rich shall be richer, the poor shall be poorer, something must be done soon"... At the time, most of the artists including Eric Monty Morris mainly focused on singing about love but not about conscious themes so the recording was very exceptional. The B-side features a previously unreleased vocal material as well. It seems that both songs were recorded for the album "Jamaican Skarama" (reissued by Dub Store Records: LP/CD503) but did not end up on the album unfortunately.
