11/11/2009 Echo Chamber

 

Tonight was our annual All Jamaican special in memory of my late father-in-law Robert. And what a list of great reggae artists and groups: Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Lee Perry, Cornell Campbell, Burning Spear, Marcia Griffiths, Derrick Morgan, Toots & The Maytals, Alton Ellis, The Congos, The Abyssinians, Bim Sherman, Dennis Brown, The Heptones, The Paragons, Tommy McCook, The Slickers, Gregory Isaacs, Eek-a-Mouse, Count Ossie, Yabby You, Jackie Mittoo, Sky High & the Mau Mau, Rico Rodriguez, and Bunny Wailer. Then there were the dubmasters King Tubby, Scientist, Augustus Pablo, Niney the Observer, and Lee "Scratch" Perry. Finally, in addition to all the classics, we filled things out with recent material from Omar Perry, L&S SymfHoney, Royal African Soldiers, and Tilly Roots (aka Telford Nelson). This was "One Fi Robert"....we hope he liked it.
