Reggae Music, Various Artists
Trojan 1979

rebel-music-inside-right-detail

Deze dubbel elpee is er een die ik vanaf de eerste dag heb gekoesterd.
Het was een van de eerste reggae plaatjes in m’n collectie en het is gek
dat ik hem nog niet eerder geplaatst heb. Ook uit 1979, net als de plaat
van gisteren. Reggae was denk ik de eerste tropische muziekstijl die na
pop om de hoek kwam kijken. Op Trojan en zeer de moeite
van begin tot eind..

From the first day I had it, this was one of my favourite collectors.
Been playing it so many I can dream the songs. Funny I never got to
post it yet. It is from 1979, just like yesterday’s post. Probably one
of the first reggae albums in my collection, on trojan and
worth every second you’re gonna spend on it..

Raymond Naptali – Trouble Possee
CSA Records 1982

raymond-naptali-coloured-vinyl

Ik heb al eens twee van deze nummers gebruikt op m’n Reggae Monster
Originals compilaties. Uiteindelijk was het tijd de hele plaat uit 1982 eens
te plaatsen. Voor een artiest van zijn formaat is hij altijd tamelijk onbekend
gebleven. Tien toffe tracks op geel gekleurd vinyl van CSA Records die zeker
enkele omwentelingen waard zijn. geproduceerd door Fatman..

My old Reggae Monster Originals compilations already contained two of
these tracks. Eventually I think it was about time to post the whole album.
For an artist of his quality he never became really famous. Ten decent
songs on yellow vinyl from CSA Records certainly worth a couple of spins.
produced by Fatman..

Big Youth – Dreadlocks Dread
Midnite Records 1978

big-youth-front

Vorige week was ik te gast bij Raul en Bas van ‘Hot Mama Hot’,
een vynil programma bij Salto Radio Amsterdam. Altijd weer een
heerlijke ervaring met die jongens samen plaatjes te draaien. een
bonte mix van stijlen passeert de revue. Bas draaide wat oude reggae
klassiekers en ik realiseerde me weer wat een geluk ik heb gehad in de
jaren tachtig mijn collectie te mogen opbouwen. Thuis gekomen ben
ik volledig geïnspireerd m’n oude reggae uit de kast gaan halen. helemaal
in de mood geraakt ontdekte ik dat deze kraker op de Global Groove nog
nooit aan bod was gekomen. Hierbij maak ik dat dus even goed. Luister
naar Big Youth en de klassieker Dreadlocks Dread..

Last week I had the pleasure to appear as guest deejay at the studio with
Raul en Bas of ‘Hot mama Hot’ by Salto Radio Amsterdam. Always a huge
joy and fun experience to play vinyl with them guys. An eclectic mixture of
styles passes by every time. Bas was playing some reggae classic hits and I
realized again how lucky I have been to work on my reggae collection during
the eighties. Once I got home I was totally inspired and pulled some old records
from the cabinet. This is when I found out this classic Big Youth album never
found its way to the Global Groove yet. High time to make up and post it.

In 1983 kwamen the Techniques nog eens bij elkaar en maakten,
ditmaal zonder Slim Smith, deze plaat. 12 jaar na hun laatste optreden
maar nog altijd buitengewoon vaardig zoals dit album duidelijk maakt.
Kant A is wel wat beter dan kant B, luister zelf..

In 1983 the Techniques came together, without Slim Smith this time,
and made this here record. 12 years after their latest performance
they show they were still very skillful as this album illustrates.
A side is slightly better than B side, listen..

Slim Smith – Born to Love
Heartbeat 1991

slim-smith-voorkant

studio-one-masters

Studio One bracht dit album aanvankelijk uit in
1973. Dit is de cd versie op Heartbeat uit 1991.

originally released on Studio One records in 1973,
this is the 1991 cd version on Heartbeat records.

Keith ‘Slim’ Smith’s untimely death in 1973 brought an end
to the career of one of Jamaica’s most revered singers whose
musical legacy remains untarnished to this day. An achingly
soulful singer, whose vocal style was reminiscent of the
Impressions’ Curtis Mayfield, Slim Smith personified the
greatness of the rocksteady and early reggae periods of
which he is a principal voice. Slim Smith started his career
as a member of the Victors Youth Band who where among
the champions of the 1964 Jamaica Festival. Moving to Duke
Reid’s Treasure Isle label, he and Frederick Waite, Franklyn
White and Winston Riley became known as the Techniques.
Slim Smith moved to Studio One as a solo artist recording a
series of succesful singles that Clement Dodd compiled as the
basis for the ‘Born to Love’ album. This album is a testament
to Slim Smith’s greatness both as a singer and a songwriter.
Enjoy the soulful stylings of the great Slim Smith. ( Heartbeat )
