“Move and Move” by Mix Blood

mixblood.jpgSaw a great movie called This Is England last night. Posting some sweet early 80s ska because of it. Some of this disc is a little generic sounding, but I really like this jam, probably the cut that got me to lay down $14 Canadian for it. Internets seems to imply it’s kinda valuable. Maybe I should rip the whole thing.

I picked this album up in Toronto on one of my last big record shopping trips, which was sadly in 2005. Haven’t been back to Toronto lately, but I hope all of the vinyl stores are still in tact… there was a surprising variety and volume of great used vinyl.

If you’ve got Netflix, you can watch the movie for free, but only from a Windows PC.

“Booyaka (Version)” by Verdy Green

verdy.jpgHappy new year! Here’s a a dinky dancehall gem to start your year right. Another one I know nothing about, but spin all the time. Both the instrumental and vocal versions posted here. I don’t know why I always prefer the instrumentals, perhaps so I can apply my own inner monologue as lyrics.

Booyaka!

“Pantle Meet,” by Johnny P

Johnny P, Youth of Today 12″align=I’m always trying to track down cheap 80s reggae & dub 12″ singles, and I think finding this one for 99cents started it all. I got this in the old basement at Bleecker Street Records back when it was actually fun to shop there.

Anyway, this one, on Pickout Records, seems to be from the mid-80s. It’s produced by TT. I’ll be posting more from both TT and Johnny P soon, but I don’t want the island music to dominate this spot.

My apologies to those of you who heard this on the original Record Jumble disc I made a couple of years back… I’m using that disc for posts while I’m working out the process of getting this blog up and running. More newer old stuff soon.
