Hopeton Lewis, Prince Buster, Bobby Thompson (Dandy), The Upsetters, The Inspirations and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global ska chart, 21st in the global reggae chart and 58th in the global soul chart.

On the anniversary of the death of simply the greatest voice that ever lived (in my opinion!), here is a small tribute to 'The Big O' himself, Mr. Otis Redding.

In here you'll find early ska, rocksteady & early reggae covers, versions, influences and songs written by Otis, all strictly vinyl!

If you like what you hear, please share!! And don't forget to follow the page for the heads up on all future uploads - cheers!



This made me very happy.


Thanks for listening mate! It’s credited to Bobby Thompson - AKA DANDY! It’s the b-side to a tune called ‘Trouble In The Town’. Cheers!


Fantatsic compilation , really enjoyed it. Would love to know who sung 'that's how strong my love is'.
