Certainly looking good - Minoru Tomita (aka Tommy Far East) advertises these on FB...at least he does to his FB friends.

Anyone else here met him? I have, a couple of times - a very nice bloke. Very knowledgeable (of course) and with a whole heap of original Ska and Rocksteady 7s that hardly anyone (if that many!) knows. It could well be these are what are now getting released.

I am amazed at his knowledge. How in the bloody blazes, does someone, completely, on the other side of the world, get to learn so much, about Jamaican music? I'm hoping someone will be willing, to let me in, on that secret.

I've thought out, many scenarios, and I just can't decide. All the same, he is a wealth of knowledge. And, like Joe's already said, is supposed to be a top bloke.

Plenty of wedge would be one reason - Tommy would be able to fork over for the rarities, plus contacts - knowing Massa (met him once at Peckings and once again at a do in Reading at the Butlers Arms) helps quite a bit I reckon.

+1. Yes. That was excellent. Very informative, and makes me wonder, why I never thought to look into R-A-S, to begin with! I know that Tommy is associated with them....

You are all more than welcome - I think I've seen (at least) one other interview with Massa online somewhere.
