Day 330 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Mikey Dread - Resignation Dub

Gonna keep it short today because I want the music to do my talking... that and I'm so backed-up working on finalizing the 2016 Spooktacular that I am stretching myself pretty thin.  Anyway, let's switch things up a bit to start this week.  Let's go with a little dub track called "Resignation Dub" by the great Michael Campbell AKA Mikey Dread.  This one comes from his 1979 album African Anthem - The Mikey Dread Show Dubwise originally released on the Dread At The Controls label.  "Resignation Dub" features a wicked sampling of Mikey Dread's trademark "jingles" that endeared him to so many when he took the helm of Jamaica's first all reggae program on the JBC in 1976.  The guy was a Jamaican radio pioneer and legend who is sorely missed.
