Playlist for 10-10-2014 S420125

The music heard on Dread of Night comes from a myriad of sources – a lot of vinyl (45s, LPs, dub plates, one offs, test pressings, previews, promos & specials), cassettes (still a popular medium in JA), CDs, MP3s DATs (a disappointing medium that is dissolving faster than any analog-based medium I’ve ever used) & vintage reel-to-reel analog recordings (always threatening to instantly become a pile of rust dust). What you hear is the sum total of a half century of collecting Jamaican music. Much of this music isn’t readily available elsewhere. Some of it is quite rare & obscure.

It’s my distinct pleasure to share with you.  With each show I’ll endeavor to list song titles though occasionally I may well be vexed to suss out just what did come next.

I, of course, make no claim to ownership of any pre-recorded materials.
