Playlist for 6-8-2012

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’s rumoured to be 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.

  1. Is this the dish you mentioned on our blog when we had the Caribbean-style Red Beans & Rice? It sonuds so good. In fact, it was so good. The coconut milk really soothes any potential burn from the pepper, so those two work well together.

    • the rastafarian reiolign is based off some of the stuff in the bible. Although the rasta reiolign worships another spirit other than god. They do take some information from the bible and interpret it into there own version.
