The Basiks, while solid, have some growing to do. Guitarist and former Nomad Ron Rutherford -- who also contributed to Baaqi’s cover art -- makes the historical connection for this trio. The recording covers two songs, Rutherford’s "Dem Never Know" and Kamau Bashiri’s "Revolution," and includes dub versions of each. While the grooves move, the songs suffer without strong lead voices or arrangements. As such, the dub versions are stronger than the vocal ones.
