The one and only Dub Syndicate album mixed by Overton "Scientist" Brown gets an official reissue as expanded limited collectors edition! Originally released as catalogue number Lion and Roots 001 in 1998 on Style Scott's own label, here's the expanded and re-mastered collector's limited edition: The LP-vinyl is now a 180gram heavyweight and has one additional track "Breath Of Fresh Air" which wasn't available on the original LP - plus the insert of a CD in a cardboard sleeve (CD contains 5 bonus tracks not on vinyl).

High-profile vocal contributions include Junior Reid, Big Youth, U Brown, and Ranking Joe alongside Ansel Cridland (from The Meditations). The basic tracks were recorded in Jamaica, with some of the pals from the Roots Radics days (i.e. Flabba Holt, Steely Johnson) at Studio 2000 (Steely & Clevie's studio) and the legendary Tuff Gong Recording Studio, followed by overdubbing in the USA at Greenpoint Studios (Bill Laswell's studio) and Playroom Studios in New York, with the final mix created at Hound Sound Studio in Baltimore by Scientist. The longplayer Mellow and Colly is timeless for real and should not be missed in any Dub Syndicate collection or serious Reggae selection. It is also the crucial half of Style Scott's two album "Scientist Vs. Sherwood Soundclash" project that started his Lion and Roots label in 1998. The other half entitled Fear Of A Green Planet was already re-issued late 2023 on Echo Beach.
