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.

Love with a Stranger

Originally recorded by the Love Joys at Bullwackies Studio in Brooklyn, NY & featured on their 1983 LP Lovers Rock Reggae, here Daphne BlueBird delivers an emotive & heartfelt rendition of this deep & rootsy tune. Nick Manasseh reworks the rhythm track in fine style, his contemporary production sounds (cascading delays, sweeping phaser sounds, & saturated reverb hits paying homage to the trademark Wackies' sound) compliment the track's organic feel & live instrumentation. Then he turns up the FX to eleven on the heavyweight dubwise Version on Side B.
