"Ska Rarities" box set arrived today - 10 Duke Reid-produced singles - average thickness vinyl, "treasure Isle" sleeves...nice, sturdy box, the notes are in a foldout, thick paper lift out sheet...says very little about the tunes, more of a very brief overview of Duke Reid and a couple of others.

Interesting to reid (did you see what I did just there? Mr. Green), but didn't really add much info.



Well worth the 43 plus p&p...

...and I haven't had a chance to listen yet...

I'm still debating whether to get this, or not.....But, "well worth the 43 quid", is a good sign. Wink

Well executed. Especially, as you're a veggie, IIRC. Mr. Green

(Veggie=vegetarian, for those that don't know. Wink )

A couple of cheapie albums which turned out to be good buys:

Londisc (LDLP 010) Various Artists - Masterpiece Vol. 1
Tracks: Rolling Stone (Owen Grey) / Old Fashioned Love (George Faith) / Do You Remember That Sunday (L. Emmings & S. Dacaster) / Love Me Now (George Faith) / If You Were Mine (Owen Grey) / Don't Let Me Do (Owen Grey) / Some Day (P. Clark) / Lover Man (Clive Mathews) / Am' In Love (Vernon Maytones) / Watch That Sound (George Faith) 1985

A very pleasing set throughout. Standout tracks are 'Rolling Stone' and 'Watch That Sound'.

Echo (STLP 1008) Dave Barker And Bobby Davis - Reggae Saggae Volume One
Tracks: Sentimental Reason / Silohette / You Send Me / Blue Moon / Dancing Mood / Evening News / Darling Dear / In Paradise / Looking Back / Ooh We Baby / Don't Stay / Juvenile Delinquent / Sometimes / It Hurts To Be Alone / What Am I To Do / Riding For A Fall / Indeed I Love You / Down By The River / Baby Come Back To Me / You Got To Come Bak / If It Don't Work Out / Sugar Dandy // Put It On / Duppy Conqueror / Ball Of Confusion / Love And Affection / Kaya / Nice Time / Expo 67 / Puppet On A String / I'm Your Puppet / Try A Little Tenderness / Let It Be Me / Hang On Sloopy / Sweets For My Sweet ./ Suspicious Mind / There Goes My Baby / If I Had A Hammer
Produced by W. Shrowder, L. Gopthall, T. Starr
Executive Producer: Lee Gopthall
Recorded at Decibel Studio
Mixed at Morgan Studios, Willesden, N.W. 10
Musicans: Starbound All Stars

A medley album which works really well and I guess one of the last projects Lee Gopthal was involved with circa 1982.
