This week's show is a skanking, 'one drop'-ping, Reggae extravaganza.
I'll be playing some Ska, some old-school Dancehall, a bit of Dub and probably several other sub-genres of Reggae I've never even heard of. Expect to hear Bob Marley, Dillinger, U Roy, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Burning Spear, Prince Buster, Errol Holt and many more.
The Spotlight falls on one of Reggae's lesser known, but still prodigiously prolific, producer/performers: Roy Richards. He started performing and recording back in the 60s and passed away just last year. I'll be playing a few of his best tracks. Simple.
The Weird But Wonderful vote is between a couple of the songs that first exposed my lily-white ears to the riddim:
1. Eric Clapton - I Shot The Sherriff http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UddURb0alQc
Released in 1974, Bob Marley apparently told Eric that he quite liked Clapton's cover version of the track from the Wailer's Burnin' album of '73.
2. The Specials - A Message To You Rudy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGDQ85Dg-ss
From 1979, this is a cover of Dandy Livingston's original; Rudy, A Message To You from 1967.
