"Rejoice ! The return of Misty in Roots to the recording studio with 'Roots Contoller' marks 12 years since their last release - and the third phase in a career thats skanked over two decades. And be glad, those who treasure memories of Misty's sonorous steppers from way back in the 1970s, when their name was inseperable from the struggle of the conscious Dread against racism and fascism. Welcome, too, to those new initiates who seek a true roots reggae injection. For finally gathered here together is the best of Misty old and new, a survey of a lifelong commitment to music with meaning.
