#0836 Peter Touch-Here comes the judge.

BIG man ‘Touch’ dropping ‘bombs’.

Critique of 2020 #2

A scathing critique of colonialism from master Peter Tosh. His vocal cut of Tommy Mc Cook and the Destroyers ‘Ah So’ released by Joe Gibbs on his ‘Shock’ Label in 1971.

A cut of The legendary Abyssinians ‘Satta’ Rhythm, (originally recorded at the home of Jamaican music Sir Coxsone’s imperious Brentford road powerhouse … Studio 1)

The Abyssinians purchased the master tapes from Coxsone and released ‘Satta’ on their own ‘Clinch’ label in 1971 and the rest is Reggae history.

‘Satta’ was in itself a loose version of Carlton (Manning) & his Shoes ‘Happy Land’, (the Abyssinians consisted of Bernard Collins and ‘Shoe’ two brothers Donald and Lynford).

musicology #17

(Carlton & His Shoes – This Heart Of Mine)

majestic piece of reggaematical musicology for our listening pleasure.

no surprise that the cream of Jamacia’s musicologists are sitting down on this session as the harmony speaks for itself.
