Day 104 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Lone Ranger - Love Affair Problem
Anthony Alphanso Waldron AKA Lone Ranger cut his first tunes for Coxsone Dodd and had his first hit "Love Bump" shortly after. Often regarded as one of the most lyrically inventive DJs of the late 70s and early 80s he consistently put out some great tunes and today's track, "Love Affair Problem" is one of 'em! Lifted from his 1982 album, Hi-Yo, Silver, Away!, produced by Clive Jarrett and Lone Ranger and released on the Dynamite and Greensleeves label concurrently and riding "The Girls Is Mine" riddim. I picked today's tune simply because we're getting close to Valentine's Day, the next pain-in-the-ass holiday on the calendar, and this works just right!
