Allegedly Bob wasn't best pleased at old Serge for getting Rita to sing mucky songs.

the only reason i haven't bought Skanking Easy, is that of duplication - one of the best pablo comps and a ridiculous price - from the same source as Dub - going by quality, further releases would be welcomed.

...or prancing up skanky streets (more Leith than Embra)?

Get Ready - Mighty Diamonds; give it a wide berth! Although lots of big names are listed on bass, drums and guitars I could barely detect their presence and Robbie Lyn is listed on ALL instruments ie cheesy synth versions thereof, this falls on the wrong side of the digital/dancehall reggae for me.

will do, gave the mp3 samples a quick run thru' - 1st couple tracks ok, but after that disny sound promising - totally agree about high water mark, after which most things went doon the pan, but there are notable exceptions - jammy really grasped the concept, and there are a few good examples on ev of dub 6-disc 1 (in posted package, did ye get that ok?)

Gaz Mayall Presents: Top Ska

I don't know if anyone here has been to Gaz Mayall's Rockin' Blues nights, they have been running since the mid-eighties and are legendary in London club circles.
Gaz is Blues giant John Mayall's son, a really nice guy and an incredible knowledgable muso.
As the club's name suggests the music is an eclectic mixture of rarities from the world of R&B; Leftfield rock and Reggae. He has released a series of crate-dug tunes on CD.
This one seemed the best introduction, given the topic.
Checking out the product link will take you to his other releases.

So you've had to stay quiet all day for the past ? cos she's on nights and now you can't play your music of choice cos she's at home all day? Bummer! With mine it's not so much the music, though I do avoid extremes, or the volume but the piles of cds which cause occasional eruptions. I know where every cd is .......... until she tidies. ;¬)

Back pain's a b@stard though I haven't lost many days to it. Ibuprofen 600mgs usually do the job - these days I take one before a gig if I know it's going to be standing. Ageing's a s0d!

Mebbes, but if you have a realist/misanthrope's outlook, everyone over about 18 is technically ageing, losing brain cells and not growing (upwards at least) - Wiki says; 'after 20 years of age there is a 10% reduction each decade in the total length of the brain's myelinated axons' so my brain is 30% bu88ered on that score and that's probably not allowing for alcohol's impacts!

'Years of agony' - bring it on/shoot me now! :¬(

Ghetto-Ology/Dub - Sugar Minott, I have this! Sufferer's roots rather than his later lover's rock leanings, it's not a great transfer from vinyl with occasional Rice Krispies sounds but if anyone wants to buy it from me at the lower price of course ........ (or a copy of course for considerably less, ie, nowt)?
Makes the vinyl look cheap - Ghetto-Ology [VINYL] - wonder if it's vinyl mastered from dodgy vinyl so even if it's virgin 180gm vinyl it still sounds like a well-used 70's original?

Posted on 16 Aug 2013 15:38:23 BDT
aye, jist make it a nice round £500, or a request for a copy - whichever you would expect :)
