The ugliest man in music in general and reggae in particular; King Stitt -

Reggae Fire Beat

More (if you've got a strong stomach), like they don't have dentists in Jamaica?

To think he was such a cutie when he started out - Mister Yellowman (remember a review saying this was to reggae what Never Mind The Bollocks was to punk, went straight out and bought it - brilliant.)

Picked up Zungguzungguguzunguzeng only a couple of weeks ago, almost as good as his first. He's still out there mekkin' de dance ram despite his facial strife;

bought Most Wanted a coupla years back - about 66% excellent, remainder a bit drab - 12" version of 'zungguzung.......' a favourite.

Good series of best ofs the Most Wanted, got Ranking Dread, Captain Sinbad, Wailing Souls (I think). Ddi you get any of the hilariously named 12" Rulers series - they focus on one particular producer and capture the early to mid 80s rise of Dancehall before it went fully digital (or cr@p in my book) such as 12" Rulers: Henry "Junjo" Lawes or 12" Rulers: Linval Thompson

Lovin' the sleeve on Showcase Vol. 2 - 12" Disco Mixes
You have to watch the sound quality on VP releases if you read some of the reviews though.
I have Soul Jazz Records Presents Joe Gibbs Productions 1975-1982 - can't go wrong with a Soul Jazz compilation my book, although this was a step too far and remains at one play only Soul Jazz Records Presents Invasion Of The Killer Mysteron Sounds In 3-D (Dancehall Digital Dub)

If you're after a Greensleeves or Virgin Frontline album have a look at Sainsburys first - most Greensleeves like the Most Wanted series are just £4.99 delivered. For instance the Mighty Diamonds album I was so pleased to get for £4.26 s/h is only £4.99 new.

Two Sevens Clash - one of the best albums of all time, at a limited price - 10 tracks of pure inspirational roots.

A definite must have for any record collection reggae or otherwise:Cb 200
With the fine Cocaine in My Brain and the immortal lyrics:

I just want you to spell New York, Jim
Well alright, I'm gonna go ahead man

N-E-W Y-O-R-K, that's New York man
No Jim, you've made a mistake, Jim
I'm gonna teach you the right way
And the proper way to spell New York
Well, go ahead, John

A knife, a fork, a bottle and a cork
That's the way we spell New York, Jim - yeah
I'm dynamite.......so hold me tight

If only Cb200 / Bionic Dread (Spkg) was still in print/affordable.

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Aug 2013, 14:12:02 BST
you both said a right thing - it is a great album - can get the above package downloaded for £7.49 - Cocaine In My Brain - The Anthology has the track 'cocaine in my brain', but none of the other island material, but serves as an excellent chronology otherwise, and includes early material with lee perry.

Hey t.s. - many thanks for the bundle of CDs - delighted!

I'll get Nyahbinghi/Dadawah - Peace & Love to you sometime this week.

As to Dillinger - this ain't too shabby - Cocaine in My Brain

I'd completely forgot the Cocaine In My Brain follow up.......
Crabs In My Pants - Original
LOL !

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Aug 2013, 14:41:40 BST
pleasure, nae bother

it's got 2 tracks i was gonna mention below on it - the absolutely brilliant un-pc Mickey Mouse Crab Louse and the abysmal 'funkey punk', which is certainly the worst thing he's ever touched. a re-issue of 'cb 200' would be welcome.

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Aug 2013, 14:54:10 BST

t.s. - do you have this Aux Armes Et Caetera: Reggae & Dub Versions and, if not, would you like a copy?

My French is virtually non-existent, but I'm sure that Serge is having a great old time being filthy over the top of some top notch reggae musicians (Oooh er Missus!) playing up a storm.

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Aug 2013, 22:02:27 BST
there's a thing - never heard of it - serge gainsbourg? i'd love a copy, cheers.

Watching Rockers [Blu-ray] [1978] [2009] [Region Free] with the surround sound at anti-social volumes. Great insight into the 70s reggae business as the film follows the hapless attempts at economic betterment by Leroy 'Horsemouth' Wallace, struggling to get regular work as a drummer. He buys a motorbike to try and make money distributing records but it gets stolen ...... Everyone who's anyone is in it - Burning Spear, Joe Gibbs, Jacob Miller, Gregory Isaacs, Robbie Shakespeare, etc as he goes from shanty shack to record shop to record studio (Channel One) to outdoor sound system. Great soundtrack and subtitles (the patois comes thick and heavy). Wonderful.

Edit - there's a scene in a hotel where Horsemouth has secured a gig as part of the house band which is basically Inner Circle with Horsemouth on drums and Jacob Miller giving it some on Tenement Yard and a white tourist couple turn to each other and the guy says, 'That's no calypso.' Priceless.

Edit - just after H encounters Gregory Isaacs boosting the locks for a tourist who's locked the keys in their car we cut to a live performance with Gregory in a wicked black wide-brim hat and a powder/baby blue three piece suit (an' ting) as he croons Slave Master. Irie star, seen.

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Aug 2013, 13:33:32 BST
actually, have never seen it, but have a hankering now - i'll have a rake next time i'm in glesgae.

gregory was a bit of a style icon, kind of dread bryan ferry? no?

Should see the lapels on that suit - almost touch his shoulder joint. It's a grand film, mostly for star-spotting and the soundtrack's sublime.

This Is Augustus Pablo also downloading at £3.99, presumably, for a limited time - one of the genre's real geniuses

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Aug 2013, 16:24:28 BST
