Loving your selections this morning as always Steve! Hope you're well on this lovely morning.

Stephen,It,s good to hear your commentary on the various manifestations of the reggae esthetic..When you say you know a lot about it,it could be restated as"caring alot about it" There was a time decades back when I was infatuated with all reggae music untill a Jamaican juice bar moved into the space right below my Kensington Ave apartment in Toronto . Tiger attached two giant speakers to the ceiling(my floor) of his juice bar.Several years of trying to sleep with the Rastaman vibration coming through 4 inches of a foam mattress. Thanks for all the thoughtful programming.

Thanks, Tim. Still kind of weird to be sitting at home listening to myself but I am out on the back porch enjoying the fresh air (and the music too)!

Thanks, Peter. I like your admission of 'infatuated', I was at a time obsessed with all things Gregory Isaacs. Trust sleep is more restful these days....

This is the link I referred to when talking about Carnage, it is from Nick Cave's blog and in this posting provides his impressions of the song: --->

Nice to hear some Ray Condo! Brings back good memories of early days at the Black Sheep. Back to the top. Speaking of Gregory Isaacs, I've had Night Nurse stuck in my head for days.

Night Nurse: Tell her it's a case of emergency / There's a patient by the name of Gregory Thanks, Tim!
