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 )

delroy-wilson-voorkant

Goeiemiddag, hier is de volgende heerlijke Studio One plaat.
De werken van Clement Coxsone Dodd zijn legendarisch te
noemen en daarom doen we er nog maar eentje. Delroy
Wilson is een van de pioniers afkomstig van jamaica en
deze schijf vinyl brengt twaalf prachtige songs van zijn
hand. Helaas heeft hij een beetje kraak en nummer 7
ook een tik, sorry daarvoor. Verder veel luistergenot.

Good afternoon, see here the next wonderful Studio One
record. The works of Clement Coxsone Dodd can be called
legendary so let’s do one more today. Delroy Wilson is one
of the pioneers from Jamaica and this slice of vinyl brings us
twelve beautiful songs by him. Unfortunately it has some
background noise and track 7 also a pop, sorry about that.
Part from that it’s pure listening pleasure.

Het was ergens in februari 1986, Barrington Levy trad op in Paradiso
Amsterdam. Ik was 28 jaar oud en met twee goede vrienden trokken
we naar Amsterdam om hem te zien. Het werd een memorabele avond.
Een van mijn vrienden, G.J. Kamer had toen nog een eigen radioprogramma
bij de KRO, ‘Demo’ genaamd. Hij had de opdracht meegekregen om Barrington
te interviewen, dus na de show werden we in de Vip Bus gevraagd die voor de
deur van Paradiso stond. Gerard deed zijn interview en toen hebben we nog
wat met die jongens gerookt en wat foto ‘s genomen. Hier onder zie je er een
paar van Barrington en Jackie Mittoo. Ze zwaaiden ons nog uit bij het afscheid,
al met al een avond om nooit meer te vergeten..wat een aardige jongens..

It was somewhere in february 1986, Barrington Levy performed in Paradiso
Amsterdam. I was 28 years of age and with two close friends went to see him.
It became an evening to remember. One of my friends, G.J. Kamer still had his
own show at KRO Radio in those days and brought a recorder to interview
Barrington, so after the gig we were invited in the Vip Bus which was parked
in front of Paradiso. Gerard did his interview and we stayed a while, smoking
and taking some pictures. Below you’ll find some of them with Barrington and
Jackie Mittoo. A memorable night all together, see how they
waved us a happy goodbye..

Scotty – Unbelievable Sounds
Trojan 1988

Scotty, voorkant

Toen ik jouw commentaar zag Scotty, wist ik onmiddelijk wat me te
doen stond. Naar de platenkast lopen en deze schijf op de draaitafel
leggen. Tja, de volgende stap is helder natuurlijk. Wat een lekkere
deuntjes heeft die man toch gemaakt. Ik schoot direkt terug in de tijd,
vooral bij het horen van nummer 15, dat maakte weer heel wat mooie
mooie herrinneringen bij me los. Vroeger in jongerencentrum de Tagrijn
heb ik ‘m voor het eerst gehoord en ik zie de tent dan ook gelijk voor me.
“..leave the studio man, I don’t want you inside here,
you can’t play bass, you can’t play drums, leave the studio man..”

When I read your comment Scotty, I knew immediately what to do.
Walk to the record cabinet and take this album to put it on the turntable.
The next step is clear off course. What fine tunes this man made, I flashed
back to some memories at the spot. Especially song # 15 of the record
sent me back to memory lane. In the old days when I used to frequent
youthcenter the Tagrijn where I first laid my ears on it, saw it before
me straight away. “..leave the studio man, I don’t want you inside here,
you can’t play drums, you can’t play bass, leave the studio man..” haha..

Hugh Mundell – Africa Must be Free by 1983
Greensleeves 1978 and
Mundell, Greensleeves 1982

Hugh Mundell, voorkant

Hugh Mundell, voorkant

Dit is het trieste verhaal van Hugh Mundell. Hij werd geboren in 1962
en na de middelbare school dacht men eerst dat hij een atleet zou
worden. Regelmatig liep hij fanatiek mee in straatwedstrijden tegen
zijn leeftijdsgenootjes. Echter reeds op de leeftijd van 16 jaar kwam
Hugh’s eerste plaat uit. Hij werd toevallig ontdekt door dub meester
Augustus Pablo met wie hij tussen 1976 en 1978 de nummers opnam.
Hugh Mundell schreef alle nummers en het geheel werd afgemixed
door Lee Perry. Hugh was een goede vriend van Lacksley Castell van
wie je ook een plaatje op deze pagina zult vinden. De titel van die 1e
lp is “Africa Must be Free by 1983”. Je vind hem hier vandaag. Arme
hugh werd al op zijn 21ste jaar doodgeschoten tijdens een ruzietje
om, geloof het of niet, een koelkast. Het was 1983, misschien geen
afrikaan maar wel “free” in nineteen eightythree. Hij heeft ook
enkele 12″ singles uitgebracht onder de naam Jah Levi.
Je vind zijn allerlaatste opname, de single “Hey Good Looking”
als extraatje bij de lp “Blackman’s Foundation” hier.
Ook zit in de file zijn laatste lp, uit 1982 genaamd “Mundell”.
Als kers op de slagroom ook nog een zeer zeldzame opname
op Youtube met mentor Augustus Pablo, geniet ervan mensen..

Hugh Mundell was born in 1962 and was first believed to become an
athlete, he joined several streetraces when young. However, after being
discovered by dub master Augustus Pablo he recorded his first album
named “Africa Must be Free by 1983”. You may find it here today.
Hugh wrote all the songs which were recorded between 1976 and 1978.
It was supervised and mixed by Lee Perry. He also kept a close friendship
with singer Lacksley Castell of whom you may find an album at this page
as well. Poor Hugh was shot in a dispute over a fridge when only 21 years
of age. Maybe not being african himself but in 1983 he was free.
His last recording, the single “Hey Good Looking” is added to the
lp ‘Blackman’s Foundation” which you may find here.
I also digitised Hugh Mundell’s last album called “Mundell”. It is in
the file as well. Alsobe sure to enjoy the rare footage in the video
underneeth this article. Enjoy the beautiful voice of Hugh Mundell..

It got on top of me and I can’t seem to get rid of it.

I’m posting an lp I recorded some time
ago. It is an attempt to leave
behind the bad vibrations.
Have a nice weekend.

I always loved his powerful voice, especially the last song
of this album is a straight killer. Ever since I heard it early
eighties I kept playing it. Still love it today so bringing this
‘Best of’ was a matter of time only. ‘Dancehall worries’ was
also released in a diffrent version and under a different name.
It was called ‘War is in the dance’ on Greensleeves’ album,
“Pass the Tu-sheng-peng”. I have added it as a bonustrack
so you can compair them yourself, enjoy..
