Argued by diehards as the most under-appreciated full-length by the Aggrolites, the Pirates would just make the case for it simply being the least-heard. So far…
Following their exit from Hellcat, this album certainly didn’t get the mainstream press attention that the three previous albums did, or the outright accolades of their debut album ‘Dirty Reggae’; but for many true fans, this is the gem in the collection.
It reflected the independent roots that remained planted in this band - the heart and soul if you will, and the reason people care so deeply for them, and their music.
For years this record has been virtually impossible to find, and that unfortunate reality created the impetus for working to make THIS version a reality. With great pride, the Pirates present to you this remastered, stellar LP version of “Rugged Road”.
