The bonus disc is rounded out by four JZB reggae songs, including their powerful version of Everyman.
States Joe: “I am beyond excited a long time dream will be fulfilled. When we were forced to part ways some twenty years ago we were all so disappointed, as had given the project our all. But we have learned that the songs, and the love behind them, have endured. It truly is, never too late for redemption”.
