After 32 years since it first appeared on the little-known about Star Time label featuring an undiscovered young French Guiana singer named Rudo, TRS Records is very proud to announce the long-awaited reissue of ‘Freedom’. Almost as famous for his elusive nature, mystic producer Simbarashe Tongogaro brings his own roar with precision skills that are noticeable on his superb production, completely ahead of it’s time for a 1986 tune, a real unique expansion of the music. As is the regular case with obscure and rare records, ‘Freedom’ was only known to a certain few in the collectors circles and remained one of the most prized and desired records from the 80s. In the recent months leading up to this release and after meetings with Tongogaro, we have helped digitize and convert literally hundreds of hours of unreleased recordings and riddims from this period. Unbelievable sessions restored from the original tapes, some truly inspiring sessions captured.
