Originally released on vinyl in April 2016 to celebrate Andres Roots' 40th birthday and 20 years on stage, "Roots Music" topped the Estonian albums chart upon release and earned a Golden Disc award in 2017. Pressed at Vinyl Plant in Tartu, it was the first vinyl record ever manufactured on location in Estonia. "Roots Music" compiles some of Roots' finest studio recordings from 2010-2014, featuring special guests Black River Bluesman (Finland), Eric "Red Mouth" Gebhardt (Alabama), Dave Arcari (Scotland), Lorete Medne (Latvia), Bert Deivert (US/Sweden), Steve Lury (England), L.R. Phoenix (UK/Finland), Jantso Jokelin (Finland), and many others. The vinyl version is currently out of stock.
