Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Scotch Dub from Spider Man

Today "Cobra Rock" by The Revolutionaries grabbed my ears & made me realize I needed to post up some Lloyd 'Spider Man' Campbell Dub. Though not a true godhead, he is nonetheless a super Hero.

Lloyd moved from JA to England in the early 60s where he worked with Rico Rodriguez, Joe Mansano & the Rudies, Winston Groovy, & others. In 1972 he returned to Jamaica & began putting out a continuous string of reggae & dub hits. By 1975  he was working with a group of musicians that came to form the core of the group Skin Flesh & Bones

Skin Flesh & Bones was formed by bass player Lloyd Parks. The band featured many of the players who would go on to form The Revolutionaries.

The band was: Lloyd Parks – bass; with Sly Dunbar - drums before he started working with Robbie Shakespeare; Radcliffe 'Dougie' Bryan – guitar; & Ansel Collins - keyboards. Producer Lloyd Campbell worked primarily out of Randy's & North Parade at this time. Fighting Dub was released on the Love label, an English subsidiary of Jama Records.

  2. A superior sipping scotch, I do believe. Just the tonic as I celebrate turning fifty. Make mine a dub-ble.

    Thanks, too, for the notes on provenance. Appreciated.

  3. From one Taurean to another, from brotha 2 brotha, young one.

    This one was called Scotch Dub for Ian from Spider Man but decided that was just to mushy/gurly.

    Sip on, MacDuff.
