There’s a new release coming from Studio One vocal/harmonica legend Charley Organaire soon and it sounds amazing. There are his first new Ska recordings in decades and features the backing of the Twin Cities own The Prizefighters who backed the artists earlier this year in Chicago for one of their Jamaican Oldies weekends.
There are two new compilations of classic Ska and Rocksteady on the market which I think you’ll agree are well worth the money to get. The tracks are from the vault of Bunny Lee so you know it’s all good stuff. They were released in the UK on the Voice of the People label on CD and LP. Ernie B’s Reggae has them available at a great price. You can also sample all the tracks at this site.
Esco Chris is a long time friend and musician who never stops making new music which is great for everyone. He’s one of those artists that just keeps working on his craft to create new musical journey’s. Back in 2012 he dropped an album of organ driven early reggae sounds called Reggae Imposter (which you can still download here) and now he’s back with another set of tunes in that same style.
DGB Heartbreak & ShadowsIt’s been 6 years since Deal’s Gone Bad released “The Ramblers”, and we’ve spent a good long chunk of that time on the road bringing this album to your doorstep with countless tours and festival performances. Folks, it’s been a blast and it’s time to do it all again!
