The Heptones - Keep On Pushing - Tribute

THE HEPTONES - KEEP ON PUSHING
Special tribute on the Rewind Show
www.rastfm.com 22nd Feb 2019




One of the most influencial vocal groups ever, Leroy Sibbles, Earl Morgan and Barry Llewellyn, came together in 1965. They went on to voice a long string of classic hits for Coxsone Dodd up to 1971 in rocksteady and then reggae styles. The 1st half of this mix is pure Studio One.

 The trio went on to record essential LPs with, among others, Harry J's, Lee Perry, Niney the Observer & Joe Gibbs right through the 70s. Leroy Sibbles eventually left the Heptones to pursue a solo career in 1978 so roots man Naggo Morris was invited to step up & join the group. Their last really big hit came in 1980 - Mr Ska Bean'a with Alton Ellis - a massive tune!

Bullwackies Reckless Roots Rockers


Bullwackies Reckless Roots Rockers
Rewind Show on Rastfm Dec 28th 2018



MIGHTY BULLWACKIES ROOTS SELECTION
Wackies & City Line releases 1976 - 198?

A sound apart.. Lloyd Barnes, Douglas Levy & Clive Hunt fashioned a disctinctive and very rootical sound from their New York base, building a strong underground following and in time attracting several big names to record with them. Original studio equipment, experimental techniques and space to improvise make for a wonderfully textured 'lo-fi' sound that at times rightly draws comparison with Lee Perry at Black Ark. Crucial...
 Some serious classics here like Joy Card's Black Girl, the Love Joys' It Ain't Easy & Leroy Sibbles' This World.

Wackies founded the studio and record shop in New York - WACKIES HOUSE OF MUSIC in the mid-70s. It was the first significant reggae label stateside as Barnes nurtured many local talents like the Love Joys, Junior Delahaye, the Chosen Brothers, Tony Jackson, Jezzreel & Mikey Jarrett.

EASY ON THE MIND FOR A SUNDAY MORNING
...cool runnings


Continuous mix. 2 hours.
Quite a few of my old records here, scratches n all..
A killer 12''s like The Chantells & Jah Berry on Phase 1, Tony Jackson's Reggae Music on Wackies, Freddie McGregor's Natural Collie, Tyrone Taylor's evergreen Cottage in Negril (I've had this same copy since it came out when i was a likkle yout) and Rock & Groove 12'' on Solomonic. 

Tito Simon's Rocking Time is a Jama 7'' and I included the amazing b-side 'Tito Skank'. Horace Andy revists his Every Tongue Shall Tell classic for Penthouse. Bob Andy revisited his Coxsone classic Going Home in 1983 for his own Anka label. A tuff cut of the Rainbow Country by Stingray. Astounding new single by Beres Hammond. Also watch out for two tracks from Dawna Lee's superb 1999 album Love on MCS.
