Macka B - Never Played A 45 riddims?

Postby Jah Rebel » Mon Oct 19, 2015 2:03 pm

Just been listening to the new Macka B release produced by Peckings... Wicked album, but can't wrap my head around many of the riddims. Can some of you guys lend a hand?

Looking for the riddims used on the following tracks:

Soundman (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MMIqauIEZY)
Too Much Chicken (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-mvd4Zxn98)
Medical Marihuana Card (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9kSRBprPdE)
Rasta Tell Dem (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWDSjCcF46M)
Iternal Love (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzv1skcBZcE)
Another One Gone (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XVrZi7qPi8)

Some are one the tip of my tongue, but the old memory isn't as good as it used to be...

Ites,
Rebel

Yes, love the album.

Medical Marijuana card is apparently an obscure Maytals riddim according to Rodigan. There are a few other nice cuts on the riddim too.

The last two are classic Studio One riddims I think but I can't quite place them either. (I can hear Marcia singing in my head over Internal Love, 'I knew one day we'd meet for a clash/date')

Just got informed 'Soundman' is actually Johnny Clarke's 'Every Knee Shall Bow'. Big up for that Kaya from Jahmbassador Hi-Fi!

Reggie,

You were on the mark as well... 'Iternal Love' is a subdued version of the Really Together riddim.

Irony in this album is that it's not out on vinyl!

Thanks for that and yes that's indeed ironic... But perhaps they'll still put it out at a later date?

Rasta Tell Dem = Raphael Gray - How Did You Know... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v1imPZEY_E

Too Much Chicken is on the tip of the tongue, but my vegetarian brain is not working properly today.... maybe a meat eater will have better recall...! :D

Good album, best from Macka since dog knows when.
Yet, nowhere near as good as Lady Lex's, imho.
The Peckings' release policy is really so strange, as that one has only been released on digital format and 2 CD limited pressings (most probably sold in the UK), though it certainly would have a much broader appeal, with a potential that could reach well beyond the usual reggae circles.
Those guys just seem clueless, at the expense of the artist's profile and career. Sad ! Maybe someone should tell them that many people have been expecting a vinyl format for 1 year.
