Man From Wareika
Over The Mountain
Man From Wareika is Rico's seminal album from 1977 and the line-up of musicians reads like a who's who of Reggae players, including Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Bunny McKenzie, Junior Marvin, Lloyd Parkes, Ansel Collins, Tony Washington and Duggie Bryan. The original Island release has become quite collectable in it's own right, but the white label DUB pre-release is changining hands for three figure sums.
