tHANKS GUYS, Haven't given the I Roy a proper listen yet but will report my findings when I have Very Happy

cheers

EDIT: Ok had a descent listen to I Roy's Outer Limits. 8 tracks & I'd say there are 3 that seem to me to be 'fillers' & feature I Roy randomly rhyming verses that , well, rhyme, ie, cat rhymes with mat etc - not very inspired chatting considering the great heights he reached.
A lot more relaxed toasting than on say Whap'n Bap'n.

The other 5 tracks are much better, where Roy is actually saying something (& has something to say)
I much prefer side two . Riddims are all non digital although there is some syn drums featured. I recognize Carlton Livingstones Trodding Through The Jungle With Chalice In Hand as one of the rhythms.

With Roots Archives still down I'm not sure if this was I Roy's final LP or if the Witty produced 'The Lyrics Man' LP is ?

I think I prefer Outer LImits to The Lyrics Man album.

So to sum up I give Outer Limits a 5 ***** rating out of a possible 8 stars...can't really compare it to anything he did in the 70's, but I'm glad I finally tracked it down. My copy didn't come with a cover so not sure who the players of instruments are on this?

Seems it's the Radics on Outer Limits https://www.discogs.com/I-Roy-Outer-Limits/release/2879982

cheers

Thanks for the review JJ. I don't imagine 'Outer Limits' sold too many - who was still buying I Roy in 1983? But if a copy fell into my lap, I'd certainly grab it.
