Hamilton Harvey Record Department
Acquired a triple cd set of old Trojan sides on the weekend. 50 songs for 13 bucks. Could not have bought a record like that for 13 bucks when I was patronizing the Hamilton Harvey record department in 1972 for fuck's sake.
Rudy Mills, The Slickers, The Maytals, The Untouchables. Motherfuckers like that. The greats of reggae music. Which got me to thinking...
What the fuck happened to reggae music?
Everything I hear in the way of modern reggae is soft as ice cream in the Kingston sun.
What happened to the hard as steel reggae street walking cheetahs?
We need some of that good old dance worthy revolutionary Jamaican soul now more than ever.
