This radio show has been doing the rounds recently and I thought I'd post it as it's well worth hearing. Supposedly from 1969, a radio show from Jamaica broadcast shortly after the death of Don Drummond.


This rhythm first appeared around July time but through unofficial channels only, sadly it hasn't had a proper release. It's a great rhythm with some superb cuts on it that really deserve to be heard. that's why we've done this mix.

Lutan Fyah - Never Once/Ginja - Damn Those People/Nature - Down With Corruption/Puddy Roots - Jah Soldier/ Step Out feat. Pia - No More Folly/Nah Switch - Love Life/Natty King - The Heat Is On/Teflon - Nuh Progress.

If/when these tunes get a proper release buy them. Beware of the MP3 sites that are selling these at the moment though - they're bootleggers.


This mix was distributed on CD at Notting Hill Carnival 2007. Limited to 500 copies that are all gone this is now presented online for those who missed out.

Featuring recently re-issued and long time unavailable tunes from the Greensleeves vaults.


Warm up from the Tighten Up Crew followed by Ras Digby on the decks.
