Derrick Harriott - Slave (12" version)



From sun up to sundown, feeling irie with the badman Derrick Harriot skillfully covering a Temptations classic. I'm not a fan of most his other stuff but the production/band is on point on this, def my favorite Harriott track. Hear that sound the/hammers poundin down...

Jennifer Lara - Woman Of The Ghetto + Dub (DUB STORE SPECIAL)



Women in Reggae don't get recognized enough. there were many and they were mad decent at creating beautiful music. Jennifer Lara to me is the most underrated female in an already male dominated, often macho genre. Everything in her early studio 1 days is a killer. Her versions too tho! If you are lucky enough to find vinyl of this woman you will be pleased with the dub sides. Often produced by Coxsone Dodd in her early days I believe.

Boyd Rivers: You Got to Take Sick and Die (1978)


Very rare footage of one of the last true hills bluesmen, Boyd Rivers. Amazing that Alan Lomax got this on film in 1978.

Rising Appalachia LIVE- Mississippi Song.5.4.2012.


Pretty live version. The album version is more electronic and chillout/trip hop style. Both versions sound great to me. I like how the folk/electronic crossover comes together on this one.
