EARL ZERO warns all mankind against living an unrighteous lifestyle in one of the biggest tunes to come out of Jamaica....
Originally recorded for producer Bunny Lee at Treasure Isle Studio (with Earl Chinna Smith on guitar), the release had a very limited pressing.
Bunny Lee had another singer voice the song. Johnny Clarke's version of "None Shall Escape The Judgement" was one of the biggest hits of 1975 and subsequently launched his career. But due to an error on the label Earl was not given proper credit as writer. Instead Clarke is often credited as writer. Including on a 1996 instrumental version of it by Ernest Ranglin.
After signing a record deal with Warren Smith's Epiphany label, Zero re-recorded the tune at Channel One with the Soul Syndicate Band in 1979.
In 2010, Channel Tubes producer Brett Tubin reached out to Earl Zero to voice his cut of the riddim. This is the result.
