When not playing Reggae I immediately turn to........

Talk to your hearts content.....but keep it sweet! No record sales, live events listings or ebay labba labba.

When it's not reggae, it's usually:

Jazz, preferably the late 50s early 60s sound (I mostly play my Blue Note albums)
Hip-Hop in style of Arsonists, Roots, Pharcyde, Black Star, Blackalicious etc.
Soul & Funk in styles of Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Maceo Parker etc.
Punk in style of Descendents, Bad Religion, All, Down By Law etc.

Or maybe something else from the 60s & 70s (my dad's influence) like the Stone, Beatles, Creedence, Bob Dylan, Neil Young etc.

There's SO MUCH good music out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always thought it was 'Karazor' CD

Don't do me no darn favor,
I don't know karate, but I know karazor


Pedantically

kerazor? Confused ?


Yeah. I imagined that the 'ke' was superfluous with the emphasis on 'razor'.

I always thought that Mr Brown was suggesting that although he doesn't do martial arts, he could still cut you up pretty bad with his razor.

I could be wrong though. I'll have to spin that when I get home now.

Still...........there are worse chores I can think of.

Great tune.

That's a GREAT song there C.D. , as a matter of fact I love that entire album The Payback. My favourite James Brown album together with Hell.

I've just noticed theyve made a definite mistake on my link
Hey!! I'm a man! I'm a man! I'm a son of a man, but don't they tell ya then
hop again
When it should be
Hey!! I'm a man! I'm a man!
I'm a son of a man, but I don't take care of you then pappa can

Either way, hopefully I'll chill out over Christmas and have a less pedantic 2005.

Have a blinder CD!

Respect

cheers baldy (you'll never guess what im playing in the background!)
I think we're both right he almost pronounces it karazor to rhyme with favour but kerazy makes more sense(and is very funny as well :D )

Very much in line with everyone else, deep soul, classic jazz, african, latin, AND...

Camper Van freakin' Beethoven!!!

While I mostly listen to Black music, I've lately been picking up Fairport and Pentangle stuff..."Sweet Child" is incredible.

Beatles outtakes...and re: Temptations/ N. Whitfield, their stuff is inspired in great part by Funkadelic and Sly Stone.

Almost forgot the DFA dance/punk thing, a revival of early 80s punk/funk.

"All hail music power"-respect to all music lovers, what a diverse set of sounds.
