Keeping with the RAS Records theme, here is another gem from the heyday of Real Authentic Sound – 1987. Of course 1987 is the very same year that history is made at RAS when Doctor Dread convinces Israel Vibration to re-unite to record Strength Of My Life, an album that became a gamechanger in my life as a fan of real roots reggae.
From the June 12, 1987 issue of the Washington City Paper, live and direct from the Doctor Dread reggae archives I present to you Rastaman Corporation: Babylon On The Potomac.

Great article. One of the only pieces of documented RAS history I’ve ever seen in print. Was glad we were able to enhance and digitize it in order to give it new life. Give thanks to Doc for bringing it to light.
