3/28/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

 

3/28/13

Both the Cap’n and Sherwood played The Checkmatesthis week! But, it was two completely different “Checkmates”! The Jamaican Studio One 45 of “Train to Soulville” was released as both “The Check-Mates” and “The Checkmates”, while the SE Asian guitar band that recorded “Sylvia” for Philips remained hyphen-less… ‘scuse me, that should be “hyphenless”. We also heard Bob Marley back when he was Robert, from a pre-Wailers Beverley’s 45, and Frederick Hibbert, pre-“Toots” and pre-Maytals. Sherwood got his mitts on a wonderful (or should we say “wanderful?”) 2-discer from Walter Wanderleyfrom which he played a couple. Other 2fers included Singapore’s All Star Orchestra and Trinidad’s Joey Lewis Orchestra. In the Home Stretch, The Selecter reinvented “My Boy Lollipop” as a ganja anthem for the 2Tone generation, and the theme of the 5@5:05 was “Tune In… and Stay Tuned”. Well… do!
