Prince Far I's still chanting the righteous words … now calling us over a very very distant and foggy sea.

Really beautiful silk-screen sleeve with bright, shiny colours ... and more over a bit of a nice surprise to find singer Larry Marshall on lead vocals here, "Sweet Sensation", "Monkey Man" and "There's A Fire" ... and I suppose he's also part of the... See full review

Agree, sounds more Jah Lloyd-ish than Jah Youth-ish (talking about the first voice, the second voice coming in unmistakably is Mr. Hibbert). But there may be a third voice coming in at about 2:20 (close to the end), that has a touch of Buchanan-style... See full review

Thanks very much for your reply and intense work on this subject! Do I understand you right: The Studio One-outfit is a different group and could/should be separated?

Nice compi, a mix of some well- and some lesser-known tunes. To my ears: No rocksteady at all. Title track by Max Romeo better known as "Chi Chi Bud".

You should add this to the db, it's a different release.

Much better now than 4 years ago ... still there's some inconsistency ... the Columbias are listed and at least the GGs and Sir Collins Invaders aren't the same as the Coxsone group (at least IMHO).

posted a comment on Horace Andy - Strickly Ranking. 6 months ago
Isn't this nearly the same as Horace Andy - Pure Ranking? At least some titles are just the same and others seem to be re-titled, It Grieves My Heart = Change Your Ways for example ... production-wise the 1979 Clocktower release does not link to Blackbeard but to... See full review

I'd guess it's Horace Andy, I cannot hear anything in the voice that makes feel he isn't. Sure this could be also Patrick Andy, Icho Candy, Horace Ferguson ... but this might be said of many of Mr. Andy's recordings (and vice versa). Proof would be... See full review

Sure, you should submit this as a variant, this is how Discogs works.
But as there are about 40 UK variant releases for the UK Blue Beat label you should check first.

Lyricwise this is something like a re-working of Count Lasher And His Calypsonians* - Calypso Cha Cha Cha. The chords are close, too.

Bob Marley copied the lyrics of "Calypso Cha Cha Cha" for "Rocking Steady".

Very impressive collection with varying styles, a bit of lightweight stuff. My personal fav is "Come Back Liza" which sounds very High Life-like to my ears.
Some of the tunes collected here obviously taken from Various - Jamaican Party Time.
posted a comment on Wailing Soul* - Soul & Power . about 1 year ago
Definitely not a 1982 but a much later press - but even more irritating: The tracklist given - as well as the matrices - indicate this to be (simply) a mislabeled release of The Wailing Souls* - Wailing Souls with partly different mixes of some tunes. Interesting issue but... See full review

Is this really Calypso Time RECORDS when the logo says "Music From The Caribbean - Calypso Time" and "Calypso Time Records" only appears at the bottom ... like a manufacturer or distributor?

This one, in spite of showing a big center hole, is a UK pressing.
posted a comment on Cry Tuff. about 1 year ago
IMHO the "Cry Tuff"- and "Cry Tuff Wisdom Man"-labels should be separated. First record on "Cry Tuff" released in 1975, the label underwent a change to "Cry Tuff Wisdom Man" around 1979.

One of the best 70s DeeJay sets IMHO, riddims are outstanding, all killer and no filler here. Mr. Beckford at his very peak.
