  1. we do what we can , as a disco man we had the main disco party ,, they had the main reggae party ,, & the rest was history ,, the person you never knew ,, by 1983 i was out of wanting be famous
  2. cats whiskers ,, bouncing ball , few places to down some rum , then you have your pure heads ,, like moonshot ,, you could "for a while" go to a sticks man is a money man blues , and hippies like reggae at festivals so yeah reggae has yet to be banned
  3. wardour st is certainly high up on the west end tour guides map ,, a west end club that was "meant" to be known for cecil gee & crock skin fashion was Gullivers ,, i never went ,, only herd think most discos would have a reggae moment in the 70s (80s) tho , alas most discos would also have a rock n roll moment punk rock & basic pop music moments too
  4. You will probably have to do other multiple exercises like eg press ups to keep the strength in the hand muscles going ,, check your diet ,, & immune system , breathing ,, if you feel sleepy ? ,, if you can,, get the best honey ,, stay away from rhubarb ,, wherever possible limit the use of pain killers ,, chuck the "Paris Eat em All in the bin , try cannabis or alternative herbal relief ,, in an emergency use "real aspirin" warning,,, limit your dose , take aspirin with milk / honey , thanks
  5. as mentioned previously ,,, jazz is big in reggae ,, now the focus is on Sam Cooke Pama Label ,, great music ,, thanks for the info
  6. sleuthing ,,, the 2nd joint by Eddie Lovette , goes into another fascination within "many" communities of the 1960s ,, that of the Great Great Great Sam Cooke ,, notable sam cooke type vocal harmony's throughout the above tune below
  7. from times when bass went big about that ,, bass charges the room , years later became drum & bass , folks forget ,electronic steppers
  8. i had to google studio one ,, i couldn't believe it, as i said a few pages back , he had a lot of jazz records ,, i herd talk about excitable pop music , tho, jazz guys drifted towards American Go Go yet supported the pop cats think everyone was taken away by chubby checkers twist ,, the twist as an instrumental is very Go Go ,, remembering pop
  9. nice , as a disco man , i notice somethings , mainly from the 1960s , 1970s reggae is more is popular yet more popular means we just followed its norm , seen as the latest slow dance thing by then , nice music ,, yet as herbs & veg kicks in the early 80s ,, music demand changed, into who is big about ya & big on the bass ;D
  10. thought it was 1979,, tho yeah reggae in those days was all about the slow dance moment of the night ,, anyway more jazz crossover
  11. yeah , i will probably add a reggae / basschat subject in the videos & possibly talk / review Don Chandler ,, not concentrating reggae, instead looking at how James Jamerson type jazz bass makes us hear bass lines & arrive at different notes ,, against what the top notes of any bass line would suggest,, it simple stuff anyone can learn ,, yet transforms knowledge of bass
  12. , nice tune 100%,, sounds like a tune associated the time when studio one started competing with/ against the UK lovers rock genre ,, proving how far / how much Janet Kay influenced the entire scene btw Carlton sings 1m times better than he plays football ;D ,, the invisible stealth jazz ,, is right there in the vocal harmony ,, jazz theory v classical music theory by the Coltrane heads
  13. yeah his a good player ,, my question to the chaps is ? & we have an example in the basschat thread eg "punk bands playing reggae etc ,, in my book the above can also be interpretative into UK /Funk, Reggae bass players eg who only play or know the top notes of basslines ,, this is what i do mainly when jamming & learning bass lines , trying to get a groove structure going "whenever possible, even if its a simple two note bass line , i search for jazz elements not classical music ones mainly james jamerson type logic & musical mentality via jazz , no fast solos & chords just the occasionally pitched blue note / beat , i plan to do videos all about it
