12/29 in a nutshell…
Whaddoo they say ‘bout the best-laid plans of mice and DJs? We here at the RSST brought most of what we’d planned to play, but it kept getting lost among all the Just-in-case I can’t find… plan-B’s (if you could even call’em plan-B’s!) and this, therefore, dear skassengers, ended up being a pure seat-of-the-pants flight! But not to worry, we still got in not one but TWO GotchaSKAvereds (Ob-La-Di Heptones style and Joyce Bond style), a Sly & Robbie visit to J-Paradise (Japan, pre-Big One) and some wise New Years advice from Giuliano Palma (Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy). Sherwood rediscovered a favorite steel-band session (Stardust doing Out Of My Dreams… the gloriously full-length complete take on the Cocktails for Two – Romance with a Twist compilation, not the mercilessly-truncated edit found on the band’s own actual album, originally issued on hifirecord and reissued by Ryko). The Cap’n & Cozy kicked off the Ooh once again with Bunny & Skitter reminding their chauffeur not to drive drunk. Be safe out there, revelers!
