Horace Andy, born Horace Hinds, was the younger cousin of Justin Hinds, who made big moves with the Dominoes beginning in the ska days. Horace Andy got his name after Coxsone suggested he do something to obscure his connections to his cousin. Instead he took on the surname of the popular Bob Andy.
Horace started his thing by connecting with Phil Pratt, but made his name with Coxsone Dodd with the tune "Skylarking" featured first in this set. Alongside his classic work with Dodd stands the tracks produced by Bunny Lee with their dub extravaganzas courtesy of King Tubby. Both producers make their presence felt here, along with tracks from other producers such as Phil Pratt. This sound is the epitome of King Tubby's magic. You don't get much more serious than this.
I was tempted to update the mixes in this show from 2002 in a 2008 style but I left it as I recorded it in 2002.
