The music heard on Dread of Night comes from a myriad of sources – a lot of vinyl (45s, LPs, EPs, 12″ 45s, dub plates, one offs, previews, promos, test pressings & specials), cassettes, CDs, MP3s, DATs & vintage reel-to-reel analog recordings. The program airs selections from a half century of collecting Jamaican or Jamaican-inspired music. Much of this isn’t readily available elsewhere. Some of it is quite rare & obscure. I, of course, make no claim to ownership of any pre-recorded materials. It’s my distinct pleasure to share it with you. With each show I’ll endeavor to list song titles though occasionally I may well be vexed to recall just what did come next.
Lee Scratch Perry & the Upsetters – ‘Build the Ark’
I-Roy – “High Jacking”
Chaka Demus & Pliers – “It Hot”
