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...
