Day 113 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Revolutionaries - Goldmine

Day 113 of the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge and we're starting the 17th week with the sweet sounds of the Revolutionaries.  Channel One Studio's house band, the Revolutionaries came together in 1975 and with the great Sly and Robbie on drum and bass they helped revolutionize the sound of Jamaican music; when roots reggae became rockers.  Today's tune "Goldmine" is actually the title track from their LP Goldmine Dub originally released on the Greensleeves label in 1979... produced by Jah Lloyd and mixed by Prince Jammy, it's a smooth flute-driven dub version of Dennis Brown's "Money In My Pocket."  Enjoy!
