THE EXPANDERS “Old Time Something Come Again” LP (JUMP112LP) {OUT OF PRINT}

Southern California’s reggae giants released this album as a free digital download earlier this year, full of crucial old-school Jamaican tunes that they have performed over the years. We loved it SO much we asked to release it on vinyl!! “Old Time Something Come Again” pays homage to rockers style reggae from the 1970s – features tunes by The Ethiopians, Culture, Justin Hinds, Peter Tosh and more! The album was dedicated Leonard “The Ethiopian” Dillon and all the Jamaican Singers and Players who provided the inspiration. Taking their name from classic reggae studio bands like The Observers, The Aggrovators and The Upsetters, The Expanders aim to carry on the tradition of Los Angeles reggae/ska bands who strive for a vintage JA-style sound…but focus more on “country roots,” a style of reggae played by The Ethiopians and The Mighty Diamonds, as well as on early 80’s rub-a-dub styles like that of The Roots Radics. LAST COPIES on MINT GREEN.
