AllMusic Review by

Deeper Roots, Pt. 2 followed the incredible first volume of the same name released in 2012 on the Pressure Sounds label. Much like its predecessor, Deeper Roots, Pt. 2 collects largely obscure or never-before-heard tracks from '70s roots reggae toaster and lyricist supreme Vivian Jackson, better known to the world as Yabby You. Culled from ages-old master tapes as well as one-of-a-kind dubplate acetate recordings, the compilation features Yabby You in his most roughly hewn state, toasting and boasting over rough and tumble tracks like "Sipping I and I Chalice" and "Chant Down Babylon Kingdom," along with a host of instrumental dub versions.
