      The Trojan four

      Go back ten or even just five years and there was a thriving re-issue industry in the UK and further afield, companies like Blood And Fire, Soul Jazz, Heartbeat, Motion and Jamaican Gold were all busy releasing collections of vintage Jamaican music with what would now seem ridicoulous regularity. The undisputed leaders of the pack in terms of back catalogue and quantity of releases was a revitalised Trojan operating under the Sanctuary umberella. They issued … continue reading…

      A Dekker Seven

      Interesting news from the Trojan/Universal camp in the form of a couple of unreleased Desmond Dekker tunes on a strictly limited seven inch.

      The two tunes, Sentimental Reasons and Sugar And Spice are late Rocksteady Lesley Kong productions that have been unearthed on master tape from the Trojan archive and are both believed to be previously unreleased. Release date is scheduled for mid July on a very limited run of 250 vinyl sevens.

      This is … continue reading…

      A Merritone debut

      It’s not particularly well known that before recording 70’s hits like Pitta Patta and Key Card, Ernie Smith had made his recording debut for the Merritone label in 1967. Mel Cooke has written all about it in the Gleaner today.

      Da Gorgon

      United Reggae website has an interesting interview with Cornell Campbell.

      Starting with his entry into the business in the 50’s and going through to the present day, this interview gives a great overview of what it was like working for Coxsone etc (in case you didn’t know already!) but you can’t help wishing for a little more depth in some subjects, all the same it’s a good read and definitely worth checking.

      What is Mod Reggae?

      Trojan records have announced that four double CD compilations will be released at the end of the month. These appear to be a bit of a departure from other recent releases as they seem to cater to some extent to the collectors market with a higher proportion of obscure tunes. The four releases are Dub, Ska, Mod Reggae and a hits/rareities package called Heavy Heavy Monster Sound: The Story Of Trojan Records.

      A few years … continue reading…

      The greatest 100 Rocksteady tunes #30

      The last 30 of the top 100 Rocksteady tunes will be featured as individual posts on this blog.

      My Number One – The Paragons (Paragons Production)

      Back at number 48 in the list was Memories By The Score by the Paragons. My Number One was on the flip side of this on it’s original release on Supertone, and in the UK on Island. For my money it’s an even better tune with a great flow … continue reading…

      Rewind & come again!

      Here by special request is the recording of the last Rewind Mi Selectah! session on 30 January with guest selecta’s Professor Mark & Tiny T in the house. Sadly the mic wasn’t recorded but you’ll hear the tunes in top quality. These are download only I’m afraid as I’m stretching the bandwidth already this month.

      Part 1 – with Mistah Brown on the decks around 30 minutes long. Part 2 – with Professor Mark around … continue reading…

      In the Swing

      Many thanks to Gorney on the Pama forum for pointing out a June 1968 copy of Swing Magazine on the web in pdf format. Swing is a bit of a legend as it was the main publication to feature Reggae at it’s birth in Jamaica.

      There were dozens of other issues of course, if any kind soul can make them available then please get in touch!

      Two from the Number One Studio

      A couple of very nice Studio One mix/podcasts have appeared recently.

      First, on a 60’s tip, is an offering from the ever dependable Tommy from the Rock A Shacka crew. This is heavy on Ska with a small drop of Rocksteady towards the end that leaves you wanting more. Top tune? – Take Ten – Jackie Mittoo. [audio:]

      Next up is the New York heavyweights from Deadly Dragon Sound with a mix spanning the late … continue reading…
