ROOTS AND CULTURE RADIO – NEW SHOW

Music from the ice region indeed. The latest reggae show features the mighty Misty in Roots. Kicking off with See Them a Come from Live at the Counter Eurovision perhaps the greatest live album ever; which begs the question why this album is not available in any format today. With even second-hand copies of the CD fetching silly prices surely the time is right for this be given the full heavyweight repress. Lets start a campaign – if only I had a facebook account! The mix also contains the People Unite original twelve inch mix of Poor and Needy and Economical Slavery from the Musi-O-Tunya album.

 

 

The Misty selections seemed to set the tone for the rest of this mix that contains a mix of original and repressed tunes from the rootsy end of things.

There are of course the obligatory King Tubby selections from Inna Fine Style’s twisted version of Ronnie Davis and a couple of sides from a recently released box of repressed sevens called Tubby’s Box of Dub – track it down it is a treasure trove of tunes well sorted inna seven inch style.

 

I was also keen to include the title track from Keith Hudson, originally on the Rasta Communication album in a purely vocal fashion only and now available on a new 12 out of New York featuring previously unavailable dub cuts.

The show ends with the full force original twelve inches of Mikey Dread’s Roots and Culture on Dread at the Controls clocking in at 18 minutes of bass heavy rockers.

 

So – skin up – enjoy.
