Playlist for 2-14-2014 S42093
The music heard on Dread of Night comes from a myriad of sources – a lot of vinyl (45s, LPs, dub plates, one offs, previews, promos & specials), cassettes (still a popular medium in JA), CDs, MP3s & reel-to-reel recordings. There are a few wire recordings in a back corner of the vault, but the air’s bad back there so I seldom venture that 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 though occasionally I may be vexed to recall just what did come next.
