Roots, roots, roots… After a couple of weeks of surfin’ and loungin’ at the tiki bar, the doctors of dub returned to the heavy roots and dub that are the foundation of the Echo Chamber. From the Aggrovators’ Johhny In The Echo Chamber album, to the Ital Roots Players’ I Dream of Marijuana, the night was a dubbers delight.
A good mix of music this morning. Just like the show’s name. Just short of a dozen new releases were sampled, some French language tracks, some lesser known songs by big stars like Etta James (The Pick Up) and Jerry Butler and some personal favorites by Joe Simon (Chokin Kind), Willie Nelson (Poncho Lefty) and Gwen McRae (Rockin Chair) and the saddest Curtis Mayfield song I know (Eddie, You Should Know Better).

The Boulder Acoustic Society track was by request, thanks for turning me on to this one.
