Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Memorial Roots Digital Dubplate

Greetings,

Went to Albuquerque last week for some family time. My nephew’s High School graduation. So I spend some time in my Secret Dubratory cooking up another 3 hour Reggae Special. Livicated to all the fallen heroes and heroines of Reggae – singing and playing in Jah’s Heavenly Choir on behalf of Memorial Day.

bless, Bobbylon
