Don Drummond Memorial Tribute Radio Jamaica 1969

Don Drummond TributeThis recording has made the rounds more than a few times but if you’ve never heard it well you are in for a treat!

The recording comes from a cassette of a radio show broadcast by Radio Jamaica’s Rediffusion in 1969 as a tribute to the Don after recently passing away.

It’s hosted by Dermott Hussey with comments from Prince Buster, Coxsone Dodd, Tommy McCook, and others who knew him.

It was originally ripped by Lord Koos years ago and we offer the greatest respect to him for keeping this. It’s amazing!


I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
