Strictly Rub-A-Dub Mix!

This has been an enormous amount of work so don't expect another of these from me anytime soon! Now that I'm done with the disclaimer let's get to the mix... I think the 40 songs will speak for themselves once you give 'em a listen. I just hope you all enjoy it as much as I did putting it together. I definitely consider this mix to be a true labor of love since the rub-a-dub/early-dancehall era is my favorite "sub-genre" of Jamaican music! The tracklist is below and I'm keeping it simple to avoid rambling on for another 4-5 hours...

2. Papa Tullo - Nuff Stylee
3. Toyan - Over Me
4. Alton Ellis - Skateland Girl

14. Sister Nancy - Bam Bam
15. Yami Bolo - When A Man In Love
16. Admiral Tibet - Trouble To A Man

I just completed uploading the file to Sharebee, which will provide you download links of the mix on a bunch of different services. I'm a big-time Yellowman fan... would love to check out your list!

That's a great list. I'm just getting into yellow man - any recommendations on where I should start?

Reggaexx said...

Thanks for the feedback! Dubman if you're just getting into Yellowman I recommend starting at the beginning... either check out his first album for Junjo Lawes "Mister Yellowman" or the excellent Joe Gibbs release "One In A Million" Both of these albums are of course available on CD and though Yellowman has made a ton of music over the last 20+ years they still stand out as some of his best work!

Good ears Pace - I'm actually not familiar with Basic Channel... I swiped the "Boh!" from a website featuring a fantastic/completely addictive time killer called Dubselector - if you haven't messed around with this yet see my Jamaican Music links and prepare to be dazzled!

Reggaexx said...

You know what? It had been a while since I visited Dubselector and I think I just got a wacky idea for my next post! Thing is, it may require participation from readers who are up to the challenge. I'll lay it out next week... if it works this'll be pretty fun.

Ace super mix, this is it, what I've been looking for, for 25 years, brings me right back to H.S. in NYC, 1982 and rub-a-dub was everywhere. Sweetest sounds I've ever heard. Thank you thank you and thank you!

Doctor O said...

Just discovered your blog and am quite impressed. As the producer of the Blue Riddim "Alive in Jamiaca" album I appreciated reading your comments re that album. As a long time reggae lover I will be very glad to share comments and reflections re the music, especially re the golden oldie days back in the 70s and 80s.

Thank you for the fine effort.
