Reggae Tape 2 - 1985

Reggae Tape 2. Second of two C90 mixes I originally did back in 1985. They were great for hijacking stereos at sessions! Roots and dancehall tunes mostly from around 1983-85, some a little earlier. vocal, deejay & dub, JA-UK selections.

Includes my favorite current artists of the time like Misty In Roots, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Black Roots, Mighty Diamonds, Johnny Osbourne, Pablo Gad (I wore my 1st copy of the Bloodsuckers Showcase LP out!), Sugar Minott, Dennis Brown, Eek A Mouse, Ranking Joe, Lee Perry, Barrington Levy, Half Pint, Culture..... also the Saxon UK fast chat style from Papa Levi & Tippa Irie. We saw Tippa live this summer and bwoy, the man can toast fast still!! All the time the lyric a rhyme.... Riddim like the Water Pumping & Get A Lick (Prince Jammy), African Beat (Time 1), Heavenless (Black Roots), Gunman (Level Vibes), My Conversation & Real Rock (UK Bubblers), Hot Milk (Jah Screw/Ranking Joe), You Gonna Lose (Power House), Terrorists In The City (Thompson Sound), Bloodsuckers (FORM), Morgan The Pirate (Tappa Zukie), Roots & Culture (DATC).

Continuous mix. 90 minutes.
