Studio One all stars

As I mentioned a few days ago Monday was the fifth anniversary of the passing of Coxsone Dodd. On the Sunday before there was an all day tribute on the web radio site www.reggaeworldmusic.com. Here courtesy of my good friend Dave Home is a recording of Paul Hutton’s “Collector’s Corner” show in the evening session featuring selectors Vern, Phillip and Sticky out of New York.

From Cambridge Road to Music House

Over on the Trojan Records website in recent weeks they have featured the story of Rob Bell who worked for Island Records and then Trojan from 1965 to 1972. For anyone interested in the development of the UK reggae industry and how it worked this series is essential reading.

Record Collector – Round 2

The new Record Collector (May 2009) with the second and final part of the “Top 75 collectable ska & reggae albums of the 60’s” article is out now.

As in part one this has some serious LP’s that would in reality only be collected by some one with far more money that sense. So eye candy it is, and with an array of superb covers this is well worth checking out. If you wanted to … continue reading…

Collectors Ska and Rocksteady LP's

The April issue of Record Collector magazine has an 8 page article (part one of two) about the most high value 75 UK released 60’s LP’s.

Some of the prices are a little suspect (£200 for Laurel Aitken’s High Priest Of Reggae on Pama??) but for the most part this is a run down of some stunningly great and rare albums. Blue Beat, Doctor Bird, Island, Coxsone and Studio One rightly dominate the listings and … continue reading…

Hooligan in court and the Wailers lose

“Somewhere in the ’60s there was a rude boy phenomena and I was then a member of the Jamaica Federation of Women and they wanted me to do a television discussion on the subject,” siad Burke.

“But I told them that they were preaching to the converted. We really needed to get a voice that the masses would hear, so I said ‘why don’t I write a song for Marley and the Wailers’. They didn’t … continue reading…
