Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Spring Roots Cleaning!

Greetings,

Still having no luck with KRCL’s Window’s 95 era machines and lost another recording. (All vinyl, too, dammit!). Having to make space on my laptop and am combining all my various ITunes folders into one.

So I thought what a great way to craft a Digital Dubplate of favorite roots jams. Enjoy!

bless, Bobbylon
