BLOOD & FIRE 2005

Postby informer » Tue Dec 28, 2004 9:34 am

Hi boarders.

you know, 2004 was not a year giving us much b&f releases,
but there is hope that the things will improve in 2005.

the label is still alive (yes, it is) and at some point, when details
are cleared, i'm sure we will get some nice announcements
from the b&f headquarters.

at least we hopefully will see more b&f releases than in 2004.

that's a minimum requirement for 2005 i would say.

yes, freddy mckay deserves a comp!

so does barry brown!

how about female roots tunes!! would sell big too, cool marketing options!

and i know baf hasn't touched the channel one catalog, but why not one or two of those dub albums, with some b-sides?

i think freddy mckay.. and im sure its possible with some help from a certain postman... maybe THE MOST underrated singer... so many great tunes!!! beautiful voice and hes one of few singers that really sound as if he feels what hes singing about.

no doubt FTA, totally agree. and baf would have their pick of tunes since so little has been reissued. they could do a pure roots collection (with a few heavy sounding lover tunes that are top drawer), complete with dubs and 12s.

would be a tip of the hat.

well mckay deserves a reissue but from what i remember its proobably not gonna happen thru b & f since it will have to involve many producers (unless it only is ossie productions who theyve dealt with??!! creation LP plus bonus tracks would be nice)

almost forgot to mention, i truly think ronnie davis deserves a collection along the same lines as the freddy one discussed here. plenty of rough tunes to collect, all would fit into the baf parameters.

freddie mckay of course would deserve a double-CD release.
barry brown the same.

as b&f always had close connections with bunny lee i assume
a barry brown set would be more realistic to appear on b&f.

Yes a set of Barry Brown's stuff for Bunny Lee would be nice. With the usual three or four extended mixes included. Tunes like "Trying Youthman(with Shorty The President)", "Step It Up Youthman", "Big Big Pollution"(with dubs), etc...

agree in total, gordon. it seems most (all?) of barry brown's reissues have been pirate labels, and the ones i've heard anyway have had awful sound quality. some master tape sources with the baf liner note treatment and heavy selection would be well received, methinks. plus, as we all know, his family could probably use the dunza. yes, too bad he never really reaped benefits of his many works.

it's settled then, ronnie davis & barry brown & freddy mckay will be the blood and fire 2005 campaign! :)
