The artist also sings 'Rock Steady' to highly praise the new genre. Reissued from the original master tape.

Another Invaders 45, "Story of Love" backed with its deejay version, "Holy Mountain."

"Story of Love" is an excellent early '70s tune, with great harmonies and organ, the flipside "Holy Mountain" being a deejay version on the same rhythm, with the vocalist chatting thanks and praises in Amharic, roots indeed.
