Originally released in 1978.

Trevor Earl Witter a.k.a. Jah Witter was born and raised in central Kingston through the golden era of reggae music. He was a student in sound from the legendary King Tubby and vocal artistry by U Roy. He was a protégé of the great Jamaican painter, Ras Daniel Hartman.

Witter migrated to the New York underground in the mid 1970's and formed a close friendship with Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, quickly becoming an integral part of the original Wackies crew.

"Captivity Captives" was recorded at Lloyd "Bullwackie" Barnes' Sounds Unlimited Studio in the Bronx, engineered by Barnes and Prince Douglas, and backed by Roots Underground.

Side A is an extended mix with a DJ piece, while track 1 on side B is the dub version. Track 2 on side B is a meditative interpretation of the classic Drum Song rhythm.

Lately Witter has been the lead artist in a group called the Rastafarian Community Development Movement based in Parade Gardens.
