Show @ StudioZ last night. Not much to report...
His set was about 45 minutes, which I didn't feel was enough for the $20 cover charge. He was backed by a selector playing versions on CD...which was a problem, because a few of them skipped. My favorite tune "Hold On" skipped to the point the big man couldn't finish the song after 2 attempts. Not the kind of skipping a selector would encounter if he used the flip side of 45s.
Anyway, he ran thru his hits like "Greetings" "Mr Landlord" "Political Fiction" and that one on Beres' "They gonna talk" riddim (forget the name).
Nice night overall, but Club Dread needs to lower the cover charge if the artist isn't going to give a full night's performance.

"Suzie" was a big 'Pint tune on the 'Satisfaction' (aka 'Zion Gate') relick a few years ago.. same riddim set from Lion Paw that busted Warrior King with "Virtuous Woman"

the riddim used for Beres "They Gonna Talk" is a 2-in-1 based mostly on the Sensations "Those Guys".. Treasure Isle business. some melody/horns comes from some Studio One though like xacto says.

that sounds pretty stupid having Half Pint there on some crappy CD tracks.. weak

Yarr, Solid.

Yeah, I mean the whole point in using CD's is for superior sound quality and ease of use and transport.

Backing him with some scratched up discs is just bad for everyone.

Did everyone boo the selecta off the stage? I would been like WTF!!! and fling the first bokkle I could grab.
