Hi – Bogumil here again for you people. I have some wonderful LPs and vinyl discs to look great eyes. I’m still delighted with the crap quality of some of the composition can be found. Those found in the rare record store, reposession house clearance in the center of Hayward Heath in East Sussex England. 1970 was the era wonderfullness for bad Lp concerns. A look at the cover Young Jimmy, that man is so damn gray, it looks like he is already dead! I hope you like them, until next time, I love you.

On a recent visit to see Phil Etgart a well known Jamaican music collector I was told of a wonderful story of how Phil, shortly after buying a collection of records received by post a packet full of Lists and Catalogues from the seller. A packet containing lists of releases by some of the rarest and now most sought after labels in the history of Jamaican music in the UK. I’ve always had a love the ephemera releated to the music, hence Jamaican Label Art a site I started with another mate, Ian Causer, and it’s with great pleasure and Phil’s permission that I post these here for you to see.
Early tune mentions Rastafari
Found this one recently, not in great condition, but plays okay and is interesting in that it features some nice Rasta style drumming and a strong Rastafarian theme throughout.
Here’s a link to the tune – Listen Here
Laro is a Trinidadian Calypsonian who recorded a number of tunes in Jamaica almost exclusively for the Khouri family at Federal. He is perhaps most well known to collectors for his Jamaican Referendum Calypso of 1961, this appears both on the Jamaican and Uk Kalypso labels. Laro still performs and is more widely associated with Trini Calypso, than Mento flavoured Jamaican Calypso.
