Playlist for 11-7-2014 S420128
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.
U-Roy – “Earthquake”
I-Roy – “Walking Stick”
Little Roy – “Blackman”
Reel Big Fish – “?”
Augustus Pablo – “Chant to Selassie I”

…and our first hour concludes with a psycho-acoustic riddim trip to neighboring Dub City, and subsequently the Dubland Amusement Park, in a big orange lorry belonging to the nearby bauxite mine with driver Trevor who frets over his brother’s recent arrest for pinching coconuts.
