Papa Jaro

Andrew and Jayman of the The Who Cork The Dance website do a great job in making available old soundtapes to download, their commentries on the sounds and deejays really help to put the recordings into context too.

They’ve gone a step further with their recent focus on Killamanjaro which has an exclusive interview with the founder of the sound Noel “Papa Jaro” Harper. Though the interview is all too short he does talk about founding the sound in 1969 and it’s heyday in the 1980’s and is a fine read. The feature concludes with a whole heap of classic Jaro tapes to download. Go there.
