Playlist for the week November 15, 201 S42082

The music heard on Dread of Night comes from a  variety of vinyl (45s & LPs), cassettes (still a popular medium in JA), CDs, MP3s,

DAT recordings, reel-to-reel tapes – The reggae vault is deep.  It’s 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 it with you.  

With each show I’ll endeavor to list song titles & a bit of background, but occasionally I may be vexed to recall just what came next

& there are many mysterious white label pressings.
