If you never heard the classic rock steady reggae of Trojan records, or the deep dub of Lee “Scratch” Perry, then shame on you. However, picking up this reissue of 10 Ft. Ganja Plant’s debut will leave listeners feeling content. One should become well acquainted with the masters, and perhaps you need such a background to fully appreciate 10 Ft.’s retro sound, but it’s as if these guys listened to the oldies so you don’t have to. Comprised of members of roots-oriented outfit John Brown’s Body (lead singer Kevin Kinsella appears here), Ganja Plant is more spliffed out and fun, but no less serious; just check “Politricking Man.”
