Respect to the Artists!


One of the most popular posts I've made is "Slow Coach" by Garth Dennis.
This 45 is one of my all time favorites and I'm happy that I still have it after all these years. Sometime ago Garth Dennis himself found the post and commented. More recently the producer of this single, Roydale Anderson (Andy) visited this site and commented as well.
I wanted to take a moment and remind everyone to please support creative and positive artists such as them.

Barry Brown - Superstar

This one is Barry Brown "Superstar" - an LP I remember quite well buying in those days.

Check out Barry - he doesn't "look" Rasta in this picture but I tell you, he sings pure roots and culture. After not having this LP for years, I found it on the web and was happy to hear it again. I would give credit to where the original poster but I don't recall where I found it and cannot seem to find it again.
I don't know how people feel about reposting LPs.
On one hand I see some people get upset by it, on the other, I have seen other blogs repost some of my collection (e.g. the Garth Dennis single and others I can tell from the picture) and really I don't mind. This music is very hard to find so I feel the more we share the better. If you are the original poster of this and want me to take it down, just let me know and I will.

Long out of print, I hope you Enjoy!

Trinity - Shanty Town Determination

Tomorrow I will get my turntable back and will make time to record some of my collection to share. For now, I am happy to share with you that I have found one of my favorite DJ albums on this blog. This is one of the LPs that I have really missed having for all these years.
I read people having different views about this album - but for me, it is pure dread and roots.
Produced by Prince Tony with some rhythms by Yabby You and hard lyrics throughout.

You can find this LP to enjoy right here.
