JA50 Greensleeves Tribute

Continuing celebrating 50 years of Jamaican independence and 50 years of great Jamaican music, here with a mix of early Greensleeves 12s. Greensleeves started up around a record shop in Ealing, London, and went on to be perhaps the bedrock of the UK reggae and dancehall scene over three decades. The label issued Jamaican productions as well as bringing together artists for new productions recorded in the UK. This mix concentrates on 12s put out between 78-82, kicking off with what I believe was the first Greensleeves 12, an issue of Wailing Souls' Jah Give Us Life. Classic music all the way...
