Playlist for 12-26-2014 S420133

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 (still a popular medium in JA), CDs, MP3s, DATs (a disappointing medium that is dissolving faster than any analog-based medium I’ve ever used) & vintage reel-to-reel analog recordings (always threatening to instantly become a pile of rust dust). 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. It’s my distinct pleasure to share it with you.  Be advised – Ras Eddie’s digital hot mixes push more uncompressed bsss than normal broadcast audio. 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 defy title and explanation. Raymoan Ameche is supposed to keep track of these things and he does take copious notes during each jump up, however Ras Eddie Ille maintains our sallow little rat-like dibby dibby soundboy can neither read nor write.
