Ready to rocksteady, Mike

Hi Mike. I think this is my first time(maybe second) listening live. I’ve been digging it in the archives.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Matt Clarke:

Very nice ska selection here, Mikey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Mike Sin:

@Marc Franics -- Glad to hear that! It's fun for me each week to put it together. Just dump a bunch of LPs, CDs, and singles on the floor and start making connections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Mike Sin:

Thanks very much, Matt C!
Avatar 12:15pm DA the DJ:

Hi Mike and Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s interesting that the album namers left the “n” in the name. I think Ska-tastic sounds much better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm Matt Clarke:

Hey DA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Matt Clarke:

Oh yeah, ready for the rocksteady

Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Frank In Queens:

Hey Mike! Sounding good so far. I've been listening the whole time, but I've been tending to laundry until now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Matt Clarke:

What a fantastic soundtrack this is. From start to finish.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:32pm -Ken:

Morning everybody - sounding great Mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Mike Sin:

Hey Frank! Thanks for listening! But most importantly, I recommend "Seventh Generation" fabric softener.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Matt Clarke:

Hey Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Mike Sin:

@Matt C -- "The Harder They Come" was really crucial LP that made me investigate more Jamaican music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Mike Sin:

Hey there, Ken -- thanks for tunin' in today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Matt Clarke:

Love this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Mike Sin:

johnk77 -- That's true! All these rocksteady tracks have all the treble completely rolled off the bass guitar. It does shake the house.
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Frank In Queens:

Mike, we use that brand, but we're out right now. Damn stiff towels!

You don't need no rashes, Frank!
Avatar Ranking Full Stop - Top Ranker! Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Candy-O'67:

You're kilkin' it today, Mike! :))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Mike Sin:

@johnk77 -- when I was a kid (100 years ago), the LPs featuring Jamaican music that were the easiest to find and most influential in the US were "The Harder They Come" soundtrack and "Funky Kingston" by Toots and the Maytals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Matt Clarke:

Dandy is King!
Avatar 12:46pm Marc Francis:

What a fantastic cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm chresti:

Love the harmony groups.
  12:55pm Lee:

@Chresti: yes, some amazing harmony groups in Jamaican music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Matt Clarke:

That was most excellent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Matt from New Orleans:
