Day 327 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Jackie Mittoo - Autumn Sounds
We could do Bobby Babylon to finish off the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge but I definitely wouldn't think of doing that to you good people. If you've stuck with me since November 1st 2015, you know I've tried to mix things up and have only gone on a riddim tangent a couple times. And besides, today, Thursday September 22nd is the first day of autumn and it gives me the perfect opportunity to break out one of the two reggae autumn songs I own. And while the riddim and mood have changed for today's track we're still dealing with a Studio One production... this one is "Autumn Sounds" by the late great Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Vendors and it comes from the 1968 Coxsone LP called Evening Time. This track really emotes the feeling of fall; an upbeat rhythm and a good bit of melancholy from Mittoo on his Hammond. Goodbye Summer 2016... you will be missed.
