Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners!
https://bovineska.com/

We start this week's Bovine Ska with two sets of early reggae beginning with a version to version to version excursion on Delano Stewart's 1968 original cut for Sonia Pottinger, That's Life! For our spotlight this week, Lily and I have found some exceptional original ska tracks from one of King Edwards finest labels, GIANT! Oswald "Baba" Brooks, Roy Panton, Laurel Aitken all recording for The King! Lily also discovered why you have never heard anything produced by Edwards after 1966. Interesting stories, killer tunes, all for you, on this Bovine Ska and Rocksteady!

PLEASE ADD OUR SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST, OR FAVORITE IT HERE ON MIXCLOUD IF YOU ENJOYED IT. XO Generoso and Lily

Motego Bay by Baba Motta is a song from a Pantomime< I remember it as I was in the cast. Nice memory from my youth (SMILE) Thanks
