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.

Ultima Yule

Kung Fu Christmas is my all-time favorite Holiday song. I have posted it before, but this is the Ultimate Director’s Cut.



Enjoy & hasta lumbago.

The Dub before White X-mas

Present Arms in Dub was released by UB40 in October 1981. The album contains eight Dub versions of original tracks from Present Arms. The album was the first Dub music album to hit the UK top 40 charts. UB40 must have been listening to a lot of Lee Perry or smoking a lot of herb (maybe both) when they recorded this one. No vocals, no traditional song structures, just lots of echo-laden synth effects with awesome heavy Dub drum & bass.

White Dub for a white X-mas.

hidden track

The song "Neon Haze" ends at 4:02. At minute 4:06 a hidden track begins: it's an industrial noise that closes the album. I have presented it as a separate track.

Peace,
