About the show

Some mellow Reggae Revive tunes suited for folks with just a cursory interest in old skool reggae. This is a showcase for a Caribbean themed dinner event, so the focus is on soulful vocals, jazzy instrumentals and popular melodies. If you're a bit of a reggae connoisseur, check out Lee Perry's ace dub version of 'Tighten Up' called 'Cane River Rock' here. It's a rare old Black Art 12" that you won't find on the usual compilations. The music brings me back to lazy Saturday afternoons in West London. Record shopping at Daddy Peckings in Hammersmith and the Dub Vendor in Clapham Junction then on for Ribs, Rice & Peas at Smokey Joe's in Wandsworth.
