Prince Alla the Rastafarian Roots Reggae singer brings a majestic touch to the
songs he sings. His beliefs run through his music and give it a sense of reverence
that only a solemn, pious man as Prince Alla could.

Prince Alla (born Keith Blake, Kingston, Jamaica,1950) began his singing career
working for producer Joe Gibbs. Cutting three tracks as a member of the vocal
group the Leaders around 1968 and a solo single ‘Woo Oh Oh’. 1969 saw Blake
follow his strong Rastafarian faith by moving into the Rasta camp of
Prince Emmanuel Edwards initially in Spainish Town and latter moving to
Greenwich Farm. It was at the later that he crossed paths with Tapper Zukie
who was just beginning to work as a producer as well as a singer. Prince Alla
played Tapper a tune he had written called ‘Bosrah’ (Bozrock), so blown away
with the tune that Tapper took Prince Alla up to Lee Perry’s Black Ark
studio’s to record the track. The results were great so they worked on various
other tracks ‘Funeral’ which was a 12’’ version to the track ‘Daniel’ and another
track called ‘Heaven Is My Roof’ which would go on to be the title track to the
album Tapper Zukie would release to
showcase his recordings cut with Prince Alla.

It is this collection of songs and their extended versions ‘Black Man (Daniel mix
featuring Tapper Zukie), ‘Bosrah Dub’, ‘Funeral Dub’ that we have put togethe
for this release. Alongside three classic extra cuts, ‘Hail Rastafari’, ‘Black Roses’
and the sublime title track to this collection ‘Royal Throne Room’ that completes
this set. Hope you enjoy the Royal Story….Keep the Faith.
