The Abyssinians and Friends
The Tree of Satta Vol 1

If any one song can lay claim to the title 'definitive reggae anthem', then it is 'Satta Massa Gana' recorded in 1969 at Studio One by the Abyssinians. This release presents the original vocal trio classic, alongside 19 more 'versions' that reveal the song in all its multi-faceted glory. Featuring 70s cuts from Big Youth, Prince Far I and Tommy McCook, alongside newly-voiced pieces from contemporary artists Capleton, Luciano and Anthony B and veterans like Dean Fraser and Ernest Ranglin. This tree has the deepest roots, from then till now!
