Duets2 #7

(Earth & Stone – Jailhouse Set Me Free)

Final cut on Round 2 of the duets theme and i’m finishing up with this mighty slice from sublime Jamaican duo Albert Bailey and Clifton Howell otherwise known as Earth & Stone. The pair first cut their musical teeth with Coxsone but quickly moved onto the Hookim brothers legendary Channel 1 in 1973 and for 5 years they recorded some of the finest ‘Rockers’ known to man.

Not 100% sure but I’m guessing that the top ranking rhythm track is courtesy of the majestic Skin, Flesh & Bones, (Lloyd Parks, Charles ‘Sly’ Dunbar and Ansel Collins), who were the backbone responsible for creating what became known as the revolutionary sound.
