Dusting off the vinyl...

Okay, I know technically Distinctly Jamaican Sounds has been closed for nearly seven months and aside from my mentioning of the passing of Yabby You I haven't done anything... now after a few months I have decided it feels like the right time to start dabbling again and I present for you a mix I just completed on my new version of Garageband. It's a rub-a-dub mix (imagine that??) with lots of new records that I've accumulated over the past year and some that have been sitting on the shelves collecting dust. Consider it my summer gift to you and possibly a sign of good things to come.

I've split the mix into 2 parts for easier uploading and quicker downloading...

2. Linval Thompson - Curfew - Jah Guidance 12"

8. Don Carlos - Just A Dread (AKA Rub A Dub Queen) - Roots & Culture - Jah Guidance LP

10. Gregory Isaacs - Can't Give You My Love Alone - African Museum 7"
11. Welton Irie - Come Nurse - Black & White 7"
12. Purpleman - In Heaven There Is No Beer - Hit Bound 10"

Rub-A-Dub Mix B

Haven't had the chance to listen yet, but just wanted to say thanks and nice to see you may have been bit by the bug again ... some conditions we don't want to see have vacines discovered.

Good to have you back!
I hope that rub-a-dub is something an old plain Reggae fan would like ...

Switched the "B-side" to Mediafire - just click on the title and it'll take you to the new download link. Hope that works better for everyone.
