Playlist for 12-5-2014 S420132
The music heard on Dread of Night comes from a myriad of sources – a lot of vinyl (45s, 12″ 45s, EPs, LPs, dub plates, one offs, test pressings, previews, promos & specials), cassettes, CDs, MP3s, DATs & 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 songs here though occasionally I may well be vexed to recall exact titles or just what did come next. Psycho acoustic dub adventures – aka specials or dub daze – often defy title and  explanation. Raymoan Ameche is supposed to keep track of these things and he does take copious notes during each weekly jump up, however Ras Eddie Ille maintains our dibby dibby soundboy can neither read nor write.
