Who is the Don dada?
Avatar 11:17am Sketch:

Same recording studio as Tom Tom Club recorded Genius of Love a few years later (same year Black Uhuru recorded there), the lyrics they mentioned Sly and Robbie, Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz split a duplex with Sly and Robbie next to Compass point
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am john_NN_nn_n:

this track is fire
Avatar 11:18am Sketch:

A lot of reggae nerds dislike that Mighty Diamonds record for that reason- non Jamaican studio, non Jamaican engineers, non Jamaican sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am northguineahills:

I still want Ringo to collaborate w/ Ringo Starr (there's still time).
Avatar 11:19am Sketch:

But I think it's super hip. And some of the best drum and bass I've heard, Sly Dunbar and Lloyd parks is a huge combo!

@chresti: Funny you said that. When I went to Jamaica, I couldn't find any vinyl at the record stores, or anything that wasn't contemporary. I went to a record store after I flew back, and found a good Jamaican record store.

The holy grail for me was Kulture Lion, on Fulton St in Bed-Stuy.... (RIP)
