Hugh Mundell’s “Rastafari’s Call” is a deep roots killer produced by Mundell and Pablo for Mundell’s Muni-Music label.  The single appears on 1980’s Time and Place LP, which was recorded at Channel One and mixed by Scientist, Tubby, Maxie, and Sylvan Morris at King Tubbys.  The Muni-Music 7″ single is noteworthy because the mix is different from the LP version. The LP version features backing vocals from Norris Reid, Hugh Mundell and Delroy Williams. The Muni-Music 7″ features no backing vocals.
