Crowns& Coronets # 10 - Kings of Jamaica and Scotland
This week sees Osbourne Ruddock the King of Jamaica and Kenny Anderson the King of Scotland.
If you do not recognise the names how about King Tubby and King Creosote.
King Tubby is a legendary Jamaican sound engineer and according to the sleeve notes of Crucial Dub he was the original founder of Dub,mentor of Lee Perry, and a hugely respected and innovative figure in Jamaican music.
Is it just me or can others hear a bit of Ring of Fire on Dub Experience?
King Creosote surely needs no introduction. You Just Want is the opening track off his 2016 album Astronaut Meets Appleman and I have just realised that it is longer than this week's Monday Long Song.
