Postby Peacemakeya » Fri Jun 22, 2018 9:57 pm

From the time 1920’s radio first reach Jamaica, only those in the ‘Big House’ could afford such a luxury and must have been dem still the ‘House Negro’ were the first Yahdy to hear such a thing as the musical influences from foreign.

Then in the 1950’s & 60’s, when the spread of consumer technology start make it possible for a few Yahdy to afford radio, the massive would crowd round shop with a radio pon the street for their first listen to Radio New Orleans USA and the sounds of the blues, pop, doowop, country, jazz, rockabilly and in particular this phenom called R&B - so capture the hearts of Jamaica and become a major ingredient in the music pot stirred up with the mento, quadril & the then ska into what become the emerging rocksteady & then the reggae.

Fantastic thread! :D

Back in the 80's when I used to stop in Red Records in Brixton to buy Studio 1 reissues I noticed that they also sold reissues of the orginal soul / r&b versions to many reggae records. I ended up buying loads of them mainly to impress my friends, and quite a few of them are listed here.

On the whole I prefer the reggae version as the soul original can be a bit slow and melancholic. However, I hate it when the lyrics are sung incorrectly such as in Otis Gayle's version of I'll Be Around.

A few from me:

I made two mixes last year combining Impressions tracks with one or two of their reggae covers. Might be of interest for some interested in this thread. See here:

recently seen the 'Carpool Karaoke' with Paul McCartney that went big-time viral. Like many i grew up with the Beatles & now renewed appreciation for them. Brother Paul deeper than i knew ... I'd wrongly assumed his reference to 'Mother Mary' was a church thing but the carpool karaoke reveal he was speaking of his mom named Mary who had just passed to the Spirit World. Paul was in deep grief & she visit him inter-dimensionally with the message of 'Let it Be' universal medicine. Woy! This wurlywurld-on-fiyah need a big dose of Let it Be.
