on the way in -- request to SNWMF boarders (free mp3 mix)
January 22, 2008 07:54PM

well now that we're deep into winter it came to my mind that we've passed the halfway point and are getting closer to summer and SNWMF 08 every day...

and as i thought about that i also thought about this board and some of the silliness that goes on here.

definitely i'm part of the jackassery, which i actually like because i've used humor for years as a means to... well i just think some nonsense is good sometimes. i know not everyone agrees but that's ok, i don't think we have to.

but i do know there is a lot of agreement here, really, in terms of who posts here regularly, who goes to this festival, and what we seek, find, and share there.

that's what makes us all the same, what ties us together -- our view of the world and what we want to do to make it better... a lot of us have found those feelings carried in reggae music, which is why we love it, rock to it, and sometimes even argue about it... sometimes feel a need to defend it to trolls here who cast aspersions about whether we might be white black brown yellow male female richer poorer (etc) and whether that lends to a legtimate love of the music... which by the way is the REAL nonsense that goes on here.


but none of that, this time.

here is a quick little clip-mix, where "mix" means tunes just run into eachother.. about one to two minutes each of several tunes that i think carry some of my own feelings about all this.

these are oldies/roots tunes (sorry, no wicked steppahz or any bobos burning anyone. this is early period pure sweet roots style), somewhat rare maybe but selected because 1) they were near the turntables and top of my stacks, and 2) i like what they say.

and i hope you do too. you can listen and download if you want, free. comes to 12 minutes and 30 seconds.

SO -- special request to all SNWMF people and boarders:

snwmf.request-roots.oldies.mp3 - 11.46MB


carl dawkins "hard time"

the planets "people get funny"

the clarendonians "bound in chains"

the stingers "sound the timbrel"

errol webster "sweet harmony"

glen washington "voice of the father"

tony clarke "righteous man"

ronnie davis "we have got to change"

let me know if anyone wants any info about tunes here

HA!

yeah but don't forget i've seen your playlists / collection info... more like how about if we switch houses for a week?

or if we trade lifes and i take your job? (although that 'devil' reference above makes it harder for me to idealize what you do...)

Good 1 So Nice!

That Planet's song is out of this world - ok, going for my coat.

And that Carl Dawkins is deep - I think it was reissued under the name 'I Want To Be Free' a few years back, on the Techniques label --- go figure? since it's a JJ's production isn't it...?

Glen Washington sure sounded different back then, ehh?

And agree with ya on the serious/silliness side of things - i've posted things on here that i thought were completely over-the-top silly but not taken as such... as it's been said though, what is joke to you, is death to me.

nice tunes...just ran that mix and had to REWIND and hear it again

these are the vibes that got me so into reggae. gritty- to me meaning not overproduced and not so "clean" sounding

just solid roots pardon the pun.

people do get funny....especially on this board sometimes
