Jamaica Rock 09.27.12 - RnB, Rocksteady, Ska & more

Having recently picked up a new (old) 45 of Dave Barker's "Set Me Free", it got me into listening to his other songs and led me into an RnB and rocksteady n ska type of mood. Dave Barker is a beautiful singer that was born in Kingston, JA. Having started out doing some recordings for Harry J and Coxsone while working at the Studio One pressing plant, he then joined Winston Riley for a bit singing with The Techniques but hit the most success partnered up with Ansel Collins for their big track "Double Barrel". I have also included a song or two by Prince Buster, Ken Parker, Laurel Aitken and The Skatalites. There are also some lovely songs by Rita Marley in here and of course (as I do love them) some great cover songs as well.

Tracklist

Playing tracks by Zap Pow, Lizzy, Dave Barker, Tony Gregory, Ben Bowers & Bertie King's Royal Jamaicans and more.
