Previously unreleased material from the original master tape. The Ethiopians recorded a couple of songs for the Merritone label in 1966. During this proto-Reggae period, they surprisingly recorded this Roots song, 'You Got To Be Clean', with lyrics referring to 'Zion', in 1966. The B side is a song expressing the sentimental feelings of a boy who falls in love with a girl.
