"the travellers" question

Postby ephteeay » Fri Jan 07, 2005 10:34 am

stupid question.. but maybe someone will know..

someone was playing a tune in the summer and i asked what it was... the answer was "the travellers" i dont remember what the tune was called.


does someone know a compilation where travellers tune(s) can be found ? this might help me find out the name of the tune!!

i really cant remember if it was pressure sounds ?? or something else...

thanks a lot.

Possibly - The Techniques - Travelling Man originally in Rocksteady for Duke Reid. Recut by others over the years including Lloyd Parkes.

The cover says it's produced, arranged and mixed by Jammy.

Black Black Minds - The Travellers on Third World.

Don't know a thing about them but I can stick the album on a CDR for you if you give me a week or so Eph.

"joy bells ringing"


fta -- i wonder if it's this same Travelers tune i'd wondered about for years which was made (more) commonly available on the RAS Records CD Jammys Man and His Music Roots Style CD:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=music

i loved this tune from back when i got this CD, but could never find it on wax or anywhere else.. or anything really about the Travellers.

but, after long work i found a 12" of this cut on Black Joy. it's slower on the 12 than on the CD, and is credited to Normon Solomon as opposed to the Travelers.
