Greensleeves Stussy link up

Sports clothing brand Stussy have linked up with Greensleeves for a mix CD, a book, a hat, some badges and a whole pile of T-shirts all based on the early issues on the label.

The T-shirts look pretty good and not a tie dyed joint smoking Bob Marley design in sight!

The web site is nice with illustrations of what they want you to buy and a few nice old graphics so check it.

50 Pounds of Entertainment

Loud Disturbance Records have just released a new cut on the Heavenless/Entertainment rhythm which they’ve named 50 Pounds. Heavenless started life at Studio One circa 1968 with the horns cut by Vin Gordon (though it’s sometimes incorrectly credited to Don Drummond).

Like so many classic Studio One rhythms it was ressurrected with great success in the early 80’s, most notably with Triston Palmer’s – Entertainment produced by Jah Thomas.

A mix of Studio One Heavenless … continue reading…

Sugar's Clash

Read an interview with Sugar Minott in the latest (April) edition of Clash, a mainstream music magazine. The online edition also features the interview, this is intersting and worth a read though it seems to have been heavily, and not too subtely, edited so it would be interesting to see the proper print edition.

Analogue Jammy's

With all the talk of a Sleng Teng silver jubilee it would be easy to sideline the productions Lloyd James was responsible for prior to 1985. Well neglect at your peril – Jammy may not have been as prolific as some but in the late 70’s and early 80’s he was responsible for many truly great tunes.

The latest effort to present these for the discerning public is a double CD/LP effort (yes – and … continue reading…

Big ship sailing on the ocean…

Mel Cooke profiles Freddie McGregor’s 1982 smash hit Big Ship in the Gleaner today. Regular readers of DanceCrasher will know that I’m a bit of a fan of these short articles from Cooke, this one live’s up to his usual high standards and as always the only complaint is that your left wanting more.

Midnight Rockers

Out now on Roots records is a compilation of early 80’s Jah Thomas productions most of which originally came out on Midnight Rock 12″s or 7″s or on Greensleeves 12″s. The productions of Jah Thomas are often overlooked when the days of classic dancehall are discussed, this CD shows that whilst Junjo may have been king Jah Thomas was no slouch.

Roots aren’t huge players on the reissue market but their stuff is always well … continue reading…

60's to 80's sevens

Coals to Newcastle style, three Lesley Kong titles have recently been pressed up on an exact copy of the old UK Pyramid label in Jamaica, I don’t know the source of these so I’ve no idea if they are legit or not. There is some nice Rocksteady either way, pick of the bunch being a couple of tough instrumentals from Roland Alphonso. All three presses have the same A and B sides as the original … continue reading…
