Junior Ross and The Spears are another great Jamaican roots group
that have been nurtured under the guidance of fellow Jamaican,
producer and singer Tapper Zukie. Who not only gave the singer
and his band their name but recorded, produced and released their
records on his own ‘Stars’ imprint label.

Junior Ross (Clifford Palmer, b. 7 September, 1953, Kingston, Jamaica)
grew up alongside his brothers Frankie Jones and Roy ‘Soft’ Palmer
who in turn had entered the music business alongside future roots
singer Prince Alla. Prince Alla had formed a group called the’ Nazarines’
with Roy Palmer and Milton Henry, so music was all around Junior Ross
and he would soon follow in their footsteps and start recording some
of his songs.

Tapper Zukie called in Prince Alla and Frankie Jones, alongside singer
Leroy King to help with backing vocals harmonies etc,. Their first
recording was the track ‘Babylon Fall’ and it would provide the title
of the album that compiled the various recordings made by the band
on the ‘Stars’ imprint in the mid to late 1970’s.

This album you have here got its initial release in 1992,….. we have
added to it the various dub versions that were b-sides to the singles
and extended recordings again produced by Tapper Zukie. So you
have the Junior Ross and the Spears classic album and its related
musical accompaniments all in one place and sounding better that ever…..

We hope you enjoy this classic roots set …..
