Fine and Dandy


Dandy Livingstone's Rudy, A Message To You and , in particular,  Suzanne Beware of The Devil have long been amongst my favourite reggae singles.
So when I saw a copy of his 1973 album Conscious on the Moonscrest label I jumped at the opportunity to snap it up.
It is slightly more mellow and soulful than the above singles and is none the worse for it.
It is very laid back and reggae lite and is just the thing to sit back and relax to with a glass of rum.

  1. To use a word (a) I am too old to use and (b) is pretty crappy anyway - ace! Love those reggae cellos on 'Black Connection'.

  2. I've never once used the word 'ace' SB, but I have to agree! I've just come by from listening to the darkness of 'Lonely Soul' over at Bagging Area and, much as I really liked it, these are now the perfect light to that shade!

  3. Did you pick this up in a charity shop? If so, it was a truly great find. Ace! There, I said it!
    (PS. Did you mean to type '1973' CC?)
