Jolly Brothers - Concious Man 12"

 
 
I suppose if I had it to do all over again I would have bought more 12 inch singles.  The 12 inch single, IMHO, is the perfect venue for music.  In addition to opening up the record to a longer song, the 12 inch size allows for a wider and deeper vinyl groove giving the music a fatter and more lovely resonance...

Here is a lovely 12 inch from the Jolly Bros.

artist: The Jolly Brothers
song: Concious Man
label: Cyprian 12 inch single
producer: Lee Perry



Solomon was wise but he couldn't find the secret of a woman.

Sometime in the mid-1990's I ran across a little used record store on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, CA.  They were having a clearance sale on used 45's.  A couple hours later I left the shop with a box full of records.  Among them were these Otis Redding singles.

King Ubulu - Njor Te Eka


 

The above album cover is one of those album covers that I dream of stumbling upon at a yard sale.  My hands are shaking and my voice is trembling when I ask the owner, "How much do you want for this record....?" 

The above album cover is lovely, but it's not the right album cover.  At least not for this song.  At least I don't think it is.  I ran across this picture at popsike so it's all a dream.  An illusion.  According to popsike the above record sold for $52 USD.  52 bucks!  Hey, Mister, do you have a second one for sell?

I love the music of Chief Augustine Ojinji a.k.a. King Ubulu.

King Love A.U. and the Ubulu International Band of Nigeria.

Gregory Isaacs BBC Session

 
 
 
A personal favorite here at gm.   This one is a must.
 
Gregory Isaacs teamed up with the Roots Radics Band for much of the early 1980's and in the process created some of the best music ever recorded in any genre.   In October of 1981 they dropped by the BBC and laid down some magic.
