So I finally got off my ass and put together an all 7″ Reggae mix. I have been stockpiling these records for such an occasion, and here are 15 to start. I did this mix in one take, so it’s live and has a live feel (cracks, pops, one lickle skip) and added a few drops from Bob, Daddy Rodigan and the tour guide we had when we stayed in Jamiaca. Her shout of “To the wooooooorrrld” was something I always wanted to use. I’m glad I got the chance to do it. For the most part, this mix has a lot of Rocksteady throughout, with a few Roots cuts and a small amount of Dub. The Johnny Jones side I had to research because the entire name on both sides of the label was blacked out, so if I’m off on that one (I was off when I reviewed the white label “Cool Operator” side) someone give me a shout. Leave it to those Reggae dudes to hide their records in their sound system. At any rate, I’m hoping you enjoy this side, all these records are original Jamaican sides with the exception of a few UK Pressings and the Steady side out of NYC, many are hand stamped and all found in the field. Sometimes you gotta have some Reggae your way, all on 7″. Enjoy. Bonus label scans at the bottom of the page.
