Triston Palmer meets Jah Thomas In Disco Style

From the very first time I listened to this album I was amused
by the lyrics, ‘Entertainment is a form of enjoyment’. Happy
times with Triston Palmer and Jah Thomas.

Prince Buster – Fabulous Greatest Hits
Fab Fab Melodisc Music 1968

click on it

There’s hardly a man, woman or child in Jamaica who doesn’t
know the voice of Prince Buster. Turn on the radio any hour of
the day or night, and his infectious Blue Beat is certain to start
echoing round the room. His records dominate the jukeboxes,
and wherever he appears, the “House Full” signs are displayed
long before he makes his entrance on stage. ( backsleeve ..)

Prince Buster’s Blue Beat, later called Ska, conquered England
and America already in the sixties. Later his songs were covered
by many groups such as the Specials when ska music relived
from the late seventies. Contains his famous Al Capone
and Ten Commandments. Get it & spread it ..

Linton Kwesi Johnson – Forces of Victory
Island 1979

An excellent idea Mouhamadou, Linton Kwesi Johnson
scored big time at the end of the seventies. After the great
‘Dread Beat an’ Blood’ under the name Poet and the Roots,
he continued under his own name. This was the follower up
which we played thousands of times in those years. Very
strong lyrics and Linton’s deep voice is still indestructible.
It was about time for me to post the other albums ..

As a bonus I have added his 1980, 12″ single ‘Di Black
Petty Booshwah’ ..

Een zeer goed idee van Mouhamadou om het missende
werk van Linton Kwesi Johnson eens te brengen. Na zijn
geweldige ‘Dread Beat an’ Blood’ als Poet and the Roots
eind jaren zeventig vervolgde hij onder zijn eigen naam
met dit album. We hebben het toentertijd helemaal
stuk gedraaid. Zeer sterke lyrics en de onverwoestbare
diepe stem van Linton staat nog steeds als een huis.
Het was hoog tijd zijn overige platen eens te posten ..

Als bonus heb ik de 1980, 12″ single ‘Di Black Petty
Booshwah’ toegevoegd ..

hebben we vandaag deze geweldige plaat met meester
zanger Gregory Isaacs. We hadden al een aantal van zijn
