My 2000th post is saved for my favourite all time skinhead reggae dancer.

TOMMY MCCOOK AND THE SUPERSONICS - PORTRAIT TO DON

The new Trojan Treasure Isle reissue box set is pretty good. It’s just a shame half the reissues have already been reissued!

THE VISIONS - CAPTAIN HOOK

This shaker is in my new podcast episode here…http://djporkchops69.podomatic.com/entry/2012-03-06T15_02_43-08_00. Some reissues and new tunes from the Trojan archives are hit and miss but this…this hits THE spot.

Settling down to some evening goodness.

BORIS GARDINER - ELIZABETHAN REGGAE

I don’t know why it’s Elizabethan reggae. I don’t know why. Someone tell me something about this tune, please.

AUGUSTUS PABLO - THE GREAT PABLO (0.00 - 3.03 secs)

Here’s some big dub for you all. It features on The Story Of Trojan Records Box Set Disc 2 dedicated to the artists.

This tune utilises the ‘Queen of the Minstrels’ riddim to fine effect and shows off a bigger and deeper sound to the riddim. There are so many wicked tunes on the box set so expect a load of posting from it from me.

JIMMY CLIFF - WONDERFUL WORLD, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

Saw Jimmy on Tuesday night in Leeds and it was a right hoot! A wonderful 2 hour set of ska, reggae, rocksteady and some African roots. He had some great hip thrusts he directed to the ladies in the audience. Cheeky Jimmy!

RITA ALSTON - POPCORN FUNKY CHICKEN

Oh my lord! Words can’t even describe this bouncing, stomping reggae chicken monster! I will try for now and find the words. Imagine a stonking riddim, a great toaster, shining organ playing and finally a dance moves only a popcorn funky chicken could achieve.

RECOMMENDED REGGAE!

DELROY WILSON - GAVE YOU MY LOVE

Literally don’t know many other tunes as good a this. Worth every penny!

Video

KING CANNON - SOUL SPECIAL

A happy little thing!

Video

THE ETHIOPIANS - SH BOOM (LIFE COULD BE A DREAM)

Doo-Wop reggae style! From deep within the Trojan Records vaults.

Video

THE BLACK BEATLES - REGGAE AND SHOUT

Better than The Beatles anyday! Derrick Morgan singing to shout.

Video

ROLAND ALPHONSO - BACKBEAT

I was going to buy and LP called ‘Millie and her Boyfriends' on Trojan but didn't have the money. This tune is on it and I love it. Groovy ska!

AUDREY - YOU’LL LOSE A GOOD THING

Don’t lose Audrey! She’s a slippery character.
