Day 150 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Eek A Mouse - Heroes Dead And Gone
Day 149... I have selected yet another killer 12" for today's tune! Ripton Hylton AKA Eek A Mouse gives us "Heroes Dead And Gone," released on the Canadian EAD label in 1980, and it is without a doubt one of the Mouse's best! Shit, the version itself is worth the price of admission! The vinyl I have doesn't give any production credits but after a little digging I see that it was repressed as a 7" on the Black & White label some time back as "Falling Heroes"; it lists Carlton Patterson as the producer and King Tubby as the Engineer. Dig it!
