Beatroots - Unnecessary War 7" (1982)

 "In the late 70’s Flashback began life, in Cardiff, as a Reggae/Funk outfit.

With the early success of UB40 and the rise of Two-Tone, the decision was made to concentrate on Reggae, and the band’s name was changed to The Beatroots to better reflect the new direction.

1982 saw the independent release of the Bob Lamb-produced tracks Unnecessary War and I Wanna Dance With You. Both songs were written by J. Henry.

The band split around 1983 due to business disagreements."

A - Unnecessary War

B - I Wanna Dance With You
