  • Lloyd Mason - Pre Ska Jamaican Bassist -

    06/08/2015 Duração: 01h02min

    Lloyd Mason – Jamaican Pre-Ska - Bass, Flute, Oboe, Piccolo The Val Bennett orchestra was playing dance music at a house party on Lloyd Mason’s street (7th Street in Greenwich Town) and a five year old Lloyd snuck out of the house to listen to the orchestra and he stayed there all night long. “Thats where I belong and I believe that’s where my music started – right there.” In 1945 at age ten, Lloyd was living with his mother and became unruly. Soon, his father came to get him and brought him to Stony Hill School. Lloyd’s father served in the Jamaican Army with the bandmaster and arranged for this move in order to teach Lloyd a trade or to learn music. Lloyd was not put into music immediately. He was taken to learn shoe-making. Six months later, the bandmaster came to speak with him and examined Lloyd’s fingers and his mouth, handed him a six-hole fife and said, “You’re going to learn this.” Bass player, Cluett Johnson’s brother was also a youth at Stony Hill School and he played the piccolo.

    www.reggaejamaicaway.com Jamaican music singer John Holt recently passed away. What a great singer. John Holt has a number of very significant qualities that will last over time: Holt was the lead singer for a classic Jamaican harmony group, The Paragons. Holt scored iconic hits with The Paragons like “On The Beach” and “Tide Is High” which was an early crossover hit. Holt then continued with a solo career and again created smash hits with “Ali Baba,” “Stealing, Stealing,” “Police In Helicopter, and “Up Park Camp.” Holt sang the original of “A Love I Can Feel” which became one of the most prominent versioned Reggae songs in history. Holt also sang many of the classic Reggae songs and placed his original touch – marking them as Holt classics: “Only A Smile,” “Before The Next Teardrop,” Tribal War,” and “Can I Change My Mind.” John Holt was a Jamaican super star from a young age and his career spanned decades of music, from Ska, to Rocksteady, to Reggae, and in to modern day Dancehall.

  • Elephant Man Special - Jamaica Way

    28/04/2014 Duração: 01h18min

    Elephant Man’s music is fun. Not only is the music enjoyable to listen to, but Elephant Man has fun with his music. Usually not too serious, it has some form of gimmick, and it’s packed with energy. Then add a live performance and the formula is complete. As a modern day Dancehall artist, Elephant Man has used this formula to bridge his work from the late 90’s and has continued to make himself viable. In the arena of gimmickry, Elephant Man is a force. He walked onto the scene with red and orange colored hair alongside Harry Toddler, Nitty Kutchie, Boom Dandimite as The Scare Dem Crew. Elephant developed catch phrases like “Good To Go,” “Shizzle Mi Nizzle,” "Bomb A Drop," and was known by the nickname of Energy God. The nickname relates to Elephant’s well known stage performances. Elephant comments, “Mi is a man, so ya see me ya see energy. Mi nah put on. Is just me dat. From mi a lickle yout it just deh ya in mi. The fans, they give me the name Energy god. They see mi climb pon de box, mi go

  • Phillip Smart - "Smart Reggae" Programme 1985

    23/03/2014 Duração: 01h28min

    This is a radio program in original form that Phillip Smart distributed in approximately 1985. The intention was to syndicate the program and it is not know if the program continued or not. Mr. Smart also operated a program from New York University's WNYU radio station called "Get Smart" during the years 1979 to 2004. Surely what is aired here was inspired and fueled though the work at WNYU. Phillip Smart was a recording studio owner, recording engineer, producer, radio host and one that must be remembered when it comes to Jamaican music history. Mr. Smart worked with King Tubby as an apprentice until a move to New York City in 1976. In New York City Mr. Smart started the HC&F recording studio. Enjoy this vintage radio program. It will make you smarter. Rich Lowe www.reggaejamaicaway.com

  • Bunny Rugs TRIBUTE - Jamaica Way

    17/02/2014 Duração: 02h01min

    Bunny Rugs was an early member of Inner Circle, worked as an earlier duo member with “Bunny & Ricky” and recorded "Freedom Fighter" and "Bushweed Corntrash," but he is best known as the front man for Third World. Bunny had a magnificent voice that he maintained throughout his career. His voice was strong, powerful, and commanding. It’s hard to separate Bunny Rugs from Third World as the image is strong and cohesive. When William Clark – Bunny Rugs passed away, we played two hours of his music in tribute. Our selections included two solo albums “Talking To You” on Shanachie and “Time” which was release in 2012. More treasures are contained in the Third World recordings. Dozens and dozens of releases to choose from and we built a “top ten” on the spot which was based on listener calls and requests. Bunny Rugs joined Third World after Milton Hamilton left in 1976. In the following decades the core group of Third World consisted of Bunny Rugs, Irvin “Carrot” Jarrett, Michael “Ibo” Cooper, Stephen “Ca

  • Jamaica Way - Luciano – The Messenger

    07/01/2014 Duração: 32min

    Jamaica Way - Luciano – The Messenger We spoke with Luciano and he reasoned on Rastafari and his visit to Africa. This podcast features that commentary along with a series of ”mutant singles” by Luciano. Mutant in the sense that they are all 7” releases not thought to be widely distributed (not on albums or major labels). In the late 80’s – early 90’s, Luciano recorded dubplates for neighborhood sounds until he and Ricky Trooper crossed paths. Trooper recognized Luciano’s singing ability and took him to the Aquarius recording studio in Half Way Tree Square. Fatis Burrell of Exterminator Productions managed Luciano along with Sizzla and Turbulance at a time of dramatic growth of the Bobo Dread movement. Over time Luciano expanded his recording limitlessly, recording on singles, albums and under contract with International labels. Luciano clearly does not believe in overexposure. In the early 1980’s when Yellowman and singer Don Carlos released volumes of singles and albums, some felt that recording

  • JaWay - Bounty Killer – “The Poor People’s Governor” – with Beenie Man Clash Discussion & Chunes

    29/12/2013 Duração: 29min

    Bounty Killer – “The Poor People’s Governor” – with Beenie Man Clash Discussion & Chunes Bounty Killer a.k.a Rodney Price is one of the Kings of The Clash as well as being tops in the field of Dancehall artists from Jamaica. Bounty helped to boost Reggae Internationally by playing a critical role. Bounty Killer is a clash dj – very blunt and in your face. In the late 90’s and 2000’s, Bounty’s hardcore style was identifiable to the Hip Hop audience and helped to pull in those listeners to Jamaican music. Bounty blended hardcore with down to earth cultural lyrics and built a foundation which others utilized to push Reggae music even further. Still, Bounty has been prolific over the years and today continues to record in great volume and tour the world. In the process, Beenie Man stepped in and crossed Bounty. Beenie is a self described “adaptor.” Much like water, he can fill any space and take on that form. On the tune “Wicked Man,” Beenie used some of the style that Bounty had perfected in the tune

    06/10/2013 Duração: 23min

    Prince Jazzbo is a Jamaican DJ and was very successful as a Producer in Reggae music with his Ujama record label. Jazzbo started as a DJ on Killa Whip sound in the Homestead area of Spanish Town. At A dance between Killa Whip and Ruddy's Sound in 1971, Jazzbo "clashed" with the great I-Roy. This clash was the start of some of the first musical "beef" between artists - well before Beenie and Capleton and Tupac and Biggie. More importantly, it was a patron by the name of Coxsone Dodd who was at that dance, that invited Jazzbo to Studio One to record the very next morning. Jazzbo was there at 5:00am waiting for Coxsone. Prince Jazzbo is from the original school of toasters in Jamaica - alongside U-Roy, I-Roy, Big Youth, Lizzy, Dennis Alcapone, and others. The style of Dj'ing has a unique sound and style in that era.

  • Everything Green MIX-Ricky Tenn feature

    18/02/2013 Duração: 44min

    Everything Green is a riddim that was created by Artiist/Producer Ricky Tenn aka Montana Green. This is a riddim that you have probably not heard before as it was produced by Ricky Tenn and had limited distribution. Still, top shelf artists are featured and it has a great sound. As I was spinning the original seven inch releases, I started searching the collection for the Gregory & Ricky combination single that Ricky Tenn released on his Tenn Star record label. I found it along with an old interview with Ricky. Ricky Tenn was a close friend of Gregory Isaacs, so we discuss that connection and share a few stories (that I can tell) of Ricky Tenn. “Everything Green” Riddim Daweh Congo – Strong – Sa Dos 7” 2002 Junior Reid – Misidentification Josey Wales – Thug Life Everything Green Version Pinchers – Somebody Like Me Montana Green – (aka Ricky Tenn) –Top A Top George Nooks – The Lord Gregory Isaacs & Ricky Tenn - Jimmy John - Tenn Star Records Interview Ricky Tenn- WRUW Radio 22 Dec, 2000
