New Ken Parker album!!! Yesteryears Recaptured (Pisces)

Postby southlondonstephen » Mon Jun 03, 2013 9:03 pm

Great news! I have just recieved Ken Parker's new reggae album and it is amazing. Recorded with Willie Lindo in Miami with the Fab 5 band it also uses some samples of old Treasure Isle horns as he remade some of his classic oldies. I'll play 3 from it tomorrow on the Soundtapes and Swingeasy present Reggae show on www.purple-radio.co.uk 6-8pm if you can listen.

I am also doing a Ken Parker special after I interviewed him at his home in Miami recently. This will be a 2 hour celebration of his long and varied career.

The CD Yesteryears Recaptured by Ken Parker (Pisces) should be available on line and in record shops in the near future.

Would love to see a compilation of his best and hard to find
Studio 1 sides.

He indicate whether there's plans to reissue anything in the future?

Ken Parker does not have the rights to his Studio 1 recordings but it would be a good idea for him to link with Studio 1, Heartbeat or Soul Jazz to compile such a release. I'll suggest it. But in the meantime I think we should support his new project as it's an excellent album. He doesn't drink or smoke and sings each week in church so he is still a young man with a voice as wonderful as it was when he made his classic records in the 60s and 70s
