King Edwards Discography

Postby nickbug » Mon Feb 07, 2005 1:10 pm

Anyone know if there is some sort of online discography of all the King Edwards stuff? I love everything I have.

I have half a dozen King Edward revive 7" I bought a few years ago and would really like to fill in the gaps. I bought them from Honest Jons but obviously he has now closed. I'm having trouble finding someone in the UK who has them in stock. Can anyone help please?

You may know but you will find a nice selection King Edwards at Ernie B:

It is in US but I guess you will have them within 3 - 7 days if you order from UK.

Hope it helps..

hi nick,
you are right king edwards is top ska, it's hard to find items you can pick up at least 5 repress lp (man about ska town,scandal and don't remenber the other name).What i can say is that you must pick up them for shenley duffus, the upsetters (not perry band) bobby aitken, monty morris and many more.
You can also find some originals on 45 but the cost is really expensive.
Some years ago i order my items from a top rank collector-seller in Uk.
it make me remind that when i bought those lp,a collection of bobby aitken ska singles was compiled on a lp presses at 500 copies (i miss that one and never seen it nor heard about since) so if you find some don't sleep take them straight.

Here are the two original labels that most King Edwards stuff was released on. He released plenty of great Ska tunes though the top pick has to be the original cut of Shan Kei Shek by Baba Brooks.

Brian @ Icicle was selling quite a few represses of King Edwards stuff on seven, Higgs and Wilson, Skatalites, the Original Upsetters, Bab Brooks etc. e-mail me if you require some contact for him. If you dont know Icicle, they are a collectors list and mail order mainly but do some very nice Upsetter, Studio One repressings and various other bits and bobs. You can also get some nice King Edwards material on Lp.

Probably means Bob Brooks/Reggae Revive. He's closed the shop but is still selling tunes at



Postby Anonymous » Mon Feb 07, 2005 6:22 pm

There were two CDs around a while ago called King Of Ska vols 1&2 which collected together the four King Edwards compilations that were released through Brian Harris back in the late 80s.

There's also a recent release which I have(bought this time last year) called Chuka Chup - Four Seasons Ska. This one should still be around.

There's still lots more that hasn't been released, King Edwards was only active for a few years but was a very busy man and I reckon there has to be enough material for at least another 3 or 4 albums.

Ah yes, Reggae Revive of course, I did think he might have meant Daddy Kool. Damn, too many nice shops closing down, shopping on the net just ain't the same... :(

I'm quite surprised at the size of his discography (we list 214 titles). Except for Shenk I Sheck I rarely came across his records in Jamaica. An obscure guy, all I know about him is that he was related to Duke Reid. This list is probably full of errors, for example I'm sure many of the instrumentals came out with different credits in JA and in the UK. And some of the stuff, like the Laurel Aitken material may not have been King Edwards at all. Anything we list without a JA stamper is suspect. I also wonder about some of these artists. WHo was Duke White? Ransford Barnett? Lunan?

Here's what RKR has come up with. As always, additions and corrections are welcome.

This amazing. Thanks to all. I've obviously got loads of stuff to try to find. I've got a couple of the albums Brian released and half a dozen of the re-issue seven inchers -- all lovely stuff. I guess I'd forgotten about Brian at Icicle. Get so damn used to ordering stuff online and I don't think he has a website. I will have to send for a list.

My mistake about Honest Jons -- don't know where my head was when I posted that. I did mean Daddy Cool which I used to try to get to whenever I was in London and had some spare time.

I can see I'm going to have to invest in RKR.

Thanks again.

I've only found volume 2 so far (and that was in Germany in Cologne) - this one includes 2 14-track albums "Man About Ska Town" and "Ska-Lutations From King Edwards". The re-mastering isn't brilliant, but since I'm not into the nth. degree of sound quality, it's OK. Tracks are (with "dodgy" years):

Tracks from "Ska-Lutations from King Edwards":1. Baba Brooks - Dr. No - 1964
2. Little Lunan - Hurry Hurry - 1964
3. Winston 'Delano' Stewart - Day After Day - 1965
4. Bobby Aitken - Jericho - 1964
5. Ronald Wilson & Roland Alphonso - Pipeline - 1965
6. Shenley Duffus - Stumblin' Block - 1964
7. Andy & Clyde - You're Mine - 1963
8. Lester Sterling O.D. - 64 Special - 1964
9. Lloyd Briscoe - What You See - 1964
10. Shenley Duffus - One Morning - 1965
11. Eric 'Monty' Morris - Many Long Years - 1965
12. Duke White - Be Wise - 1964
13. Lloyd Clarke - Fellow Jamaican - 1964
14. Bobby Aitken - Set Me Free - 1965

Tracks from "Man About Ska Town":
15. Lester Sterling O.D. - Man About Town - 1964
16. Bobby Aitken - Little Girl - 1964
17. Douglas Brothers - Down And Out - 1965
18. Eric 'Monty' Morris - Love Can Make A Man - 1965
19. Blues Blenders - Girl Next Door, The - 1965
20. Duke White - You Are Mine - 1965
21. Andy & Clyde - Never Be A Slave - 1965
22. Lloyd Briscoe - Mr. Cleveland - 1965
23. Ronald Wilson & Roland Alphonso - Kingston 11 - 1966
24. Roy Panton & Cornell Campbell - Sweetest Girl - 1966
25. Shenley Duffus - La La La - 1965
26. Patrick & Edwards' Allstars - Easy To Remember - 1964
27. Andy & Clyde - Lonesome - 1965
28. Cornell Campbell - Gloria - 1964

Roland Alphonso's 'Shuffle Duck' is based on a tune aka 'Hucklebuck'. Maybe it's the same track here with a different title? ‘Shuffle Duck’ itself is a Ska cut of Charlie Parker’s classic ‘Now’s The Time’ taken from the Verve LP of the same name (1952/3).

Concerning 'Scandalising' - it's down on UK press as The Upsetters (original) and the vocalist sounds like it is Justin Hinds. I don't know about Andy & Clyde (Reuben Anderson) but Andy (Reuben Anderson) & Joey (Joanne Dennis) recorded several Ska sides for Coxsone as well, so that could be right.

The question is, do Andy & Clyde sound like Justin Hinds on the discs you have?

Some more info on the King Edwards 'Upsetters' on this one from the Trojan forum: ... php?t=1126
