This was followed by his self-produced Tell It Like It Is album, featuring the near-hit "Yesterday Man", and the commentary on the lack of airplay for reggae records on Radio 1, "BBC".[1] Thomas continued recording commercial reggae, working with the likes of Lloyd Charmers. In 1974, he toured the UK backed by the musicians who would later go on to become Misty In Roots.[ Read more on Last.fm.
