The start of a 4 week Gulls Window Circus series with the self-describing name ‘reggae’. All tracks are being played on vinyl, spun on a real turntable in real time. Lots of Soul Jazz compilations, some classic Bob Marley, a few Emotional Rescue 7″s, and a dub of a Sheila Rickards track. The song that keeps running though my head is the first song in the second hour, Ken Boothe ‘When I Fall In Love’ – like a reggae Johnny Mathis. Blundetto & Grand Magneto’s version of a song popularized by Nilsson ‘Everybody’s Talkin’ also keeps sticking – outside of that, every track should please. Be sure to check Zoot Simms ‘African Challenge’ and The Stingers ‘Rasta Don’t Stop No One’.
