Wow! Never seen that one on 7". Only know of it as a 12" release. Great song with a nice dub. Those Skengdon releases might have been played to death these last years with the "digital renaissance" but they never seem to become tiresome. Great stuff.

Horace Andy-New Broom (Money Disc 7"), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZOqDr0H6dA. Love the western movie feel of this 1973 Studio One scorcher. Some serious guitar playing on this one, any idea who played guitar in "The New Establishment" who are credited for the version?

Noel Brown as Masha and the Realities - One Day Belly Full 7" (No label)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TglIvEhV37M

A far left-field tune with the Realities AKA Food, Clothes & Shelter (who are these guys?) as the backing band and produced by Soney Fudgie. Joseph Hill sound-alike Noel Brown delivers parables over a fierce rhythm replete with soaring trumpet, guitar stabs, and ominous synths. I've never heard anything with a sound analogous to this from 1984 or otherwise - kind of an unexplored avenue that reggae never took. I highly rate some of Fudgie's digital output but I'd love to know if he produced any more pre-digital tunes like this one. Deadly and dreadful version on this 7" too!

Wow. What a killer single! Food, Clothes & Shelter I always thought was a UK outfit. I have only one 12" of them called »People of the Ghetto«.

solid mid 80s sound on that FC&S record.

Food, Clothes & Shelter is a band led by keyboard player and arranger Dennis "Jah D" Fearon (mis-spelled Ferron on that label).
he's the guy who built the riddims for Mankind - These Three Girls & Country Life.
he's been humbly and quietly behind great reggae music in every decade since the '70s (a time during which he played on much of the classic Joe Gibbs roots output, including the Sylford Walker & Naggo Morris classics we all love, among others).
among his other '80s accomplishments are as you mention, the great riddims on the Tilly album/singles on Sonny Fudgie label.
he's got a lot of productions of his own under his belt, both as simply "Jah D" as well as under the FC&S name, most like that 7", are unknown/underrated.
hopefully we'll get around to releasing some of them eventually!

Right on, RB! Thanks for your info. I pulled up the name Jah D from Reggaepedia when I searched Dennis Ferron on Google but couldn't find anything else.

I'm pretty sure I've seen a couple FC&S 7"s listed by JA sellers some years ago and remember them going for a fair penny. It would be great to see works arranged by him on the streets again! Judging by this track, his group had a unique vibe that was far removed from the Radics sound of the day.

Thanks for that info RB. Last time I checked he had a few albums available on Itunes as well.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but Jah D's son is Diavallan Fearon who runs the Builders Music record label. Put out some nice singles a little while back.
