Hey Matt -- Yes, Trojan released a bunch of cool boss reggae/skinhead comps in 2019 as a "50th Anniversary" campaign.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Matt Clarke:

@Mike Sin: I know of the Moon Stomp one. If you know what the other ones are, let me know.
Avatar 12:18pm HyperDose:

Comps are what got me into my style of music too. Love them and they're usually cheaper than actual albums!

Hey, Mike, Matt, RW and all -- It's a snowy day here in VA

Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 12:21pm Terre T:

Hi Mike- that was both a beautiful and killah opening set- Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Mike Sin:

@HyperDose -- back in the '80s and early '90s before endless informational resources, comps were it for me for so many genres of music from the '60s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Matt Clarke:

@Mike Sin: Thanks Mikey!

Hey Hyperdose, Mom Whig and Terre T!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Mike Sin:

Hey Joe B -- thanks for tuning in!
Avatar 12:29pm Joe B:

This song might rival Hey Joe for complicated credit history!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Paulie B:

Is there a more well known dub version of this song? ("No No No")
Avatar 12:30pm HyperDose:

Hey Matt! How were the enchiladas?
@Mike I briefly remember those days before you could find anything online. Kinda miss them now.
@Terre Right?! I think I prefer the Soul Sisters version
  12:30pm johnk77:

by various djs nyc 1970s->1990s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Mike Sin:

Hey Joe -- Yes! Bo Diddley credit there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Matt Clarke:

@Hyperdose; Enchiladas turned out decent! I need to kick up the spice level on the recipe I used next time tho. Too mild for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Mike Sin:

Paulie B! Hello! -- Dawn Penn recut the track in the 1990s.

Hey Mike! Wasn't there a club the Green Door on West 29th or West 30th? It had a green door. Hey DJ SOS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm ike p:

thanks dj sos, great set!
Avatar 12:35pm Joe B:

W 24th?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm luka:

i was reminded of this show yesterday when i was attempting to determine the origin of the phrase “ranking full stop”. that’s just good SEO.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Woo:

Ranking Full Stop is just what I need right now. Been shoveling snow for hours in Chicagoland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Matt Clarke:

Giorgio Gomelsky's club on W 24th. Closed a couple years ago right?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm luka:

@woo we got a couple two tree inches in Richmond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Paulie B:

Actually, I figured it out! It's Big Youth's song "Screaming Target" samples/covers "No No No." That's where I'd heard it before. Though apparently Dawn Penn's version is much more famous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Matt Clarke:

Freda Payne's version on the cool label, Invictus. Holland Dozier Holland's label after they left Motown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Mike Sin:

Hey there John W! Yes - west 24th street parties in a rehearsal space owned by Giorgio Gomelsky!
  12:39pm Andres:

I heard the Little Drummer Boy but thought I was crazy! Also heard This Land Is Our Land in the Serge Gainsbourg!
Avatar 12:39pm HyperDose:

DJ SOS knows how to pick 'em. Hoping she comes back for more sets!

@Matt That's the spirit, spice is nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Matt Clarke:

Nice stuff, SOS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Mike Sin:

Hey Woo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Mike Sin:

Andres -- interesting call on the Gainsbourg track!
  12:43pm johnk77:

no no no top shelf riddim
is that the same gomelsky
georgian/uk mad music influencer etc.?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Mike Sin:

Hi luka -- I basically "got here" after hearing that track and the English Beat in 1980 or so. Thanks for listening today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Mike Sin:

@Paulie B -- I'm noting to feature Big Youth tracks on future shows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Matt Clarke:

Same one, johnk77
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 12:48pm Terre T:

Damn that Alton Ellis song was so gorgeous it brought a lil tear to my eye
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Mike Sin:

johnk77 -- Yes, the former Yardbirds manager let a space of his in NYC be used for these ad hoc monthly parties.
Avatar 12:50pm Kitschy Mama:
