14 years after the now legendary volume 1 and we're finally getting the sequel to letts' account of his residence at the roxy, London when reggae was sewn forever into the young punk scene.

the rest, as they say, is history. there’s no way to look at the impact and importance of punk without also understanding the importance of reggae – and, specifically, letts - during the era of the clash, the slits and wire. punk, then post punk and the course of british music was changed through experiments with reggae and dub, and these tracks sound as fresh and inspiring today as they did when letts played them all those years ago.
