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 cuts starting off with the original (which is unfortunately speeded up).

And Triston Palmer’s cut for Jah Thomas:

The new cut features around 13 different versions from new and foundation artists including Sugar Minott, Chuck Fenda and Lutan Fyah. Pick of the bunch are probably the contributions from Admiral Tibet and Gappy Ranks.

It’s not clear if this will be available on vinyl or just download. If anyone knows please leave a comment.
