- SOME-A-HOLLA SOME-A-BRAWL - (CD)
Orange Street, Kingston, Jamaica the epicentre of the Reggae world. Where all the record shops, studios, pressing plants were based. The new cut 45s would be taken to the shops after a testing on various Sound Systems around the people and passed to the record shop proprietors to sell. Bunny Lee as a former record plugger and now a leading producer knew what the people wanted and a great ear for a hit tune. This collection carries some of the stand out tracks from this period, when music was finding a new beat as Rocksteady rolled into the late 60s early 70s Reggae Sound. The Ravers Mati and Fulli telling the story that the Rent too High to The Twinkle Brothers Miss Laba Laba .you see and blind you must hear and deaf.clean up your own backyard before talking about others. All stories of daily life and love songs told over a cracking rhythm played by finest musicians on the island. So yes Some A Holla Some A Bawl as Max Romeo would say but it cant be denied that all the tunes on this selection are of a fine pedigree..
