"Sleeping in the Park" (Tamoki Wambesi)

total killer... even though Roy Cousins is fairly criticized for re-re-recycling a short number of riddims (quality, mostly Radics business that they are), this one is a gem. early 80s style, out on a couple compilations.

the biggest portion of his body of work (over 100 known singles and a few LPs) come from early work at Studio 1, and/or with the Righteous Flames. but because those works are pretty hard to come by, a nice place to get a taste would be the recently-released Studio 1 set called "Crucial Times".

but you're right to get ahead of the curve on this one -- last time he was @ SNWMF, the biggest fans in the crowd were original veterans like Tony Chin and Norman and Ralston Grant, each of which were licking shots and pleading for forwards... and x-amount of both.

try "the rite sound reggae story" or something like that, its got a few crucial winston jarrett tracks on it.

• Winston Jarrett & The Flames - Spanish Town Road / Gladstone Star Band - Coming From The Country
• Eddy Grandson - Jah Garden
• Gladstone Anderson - Will You Stay
• Mellows - Pray To Jah
• Gladstone Star Band - Give Thanks And Pray
• Leroy Smart - What Will I Do
• Leroy Smart - Jah Almighty
• Winston Jarrett & The Flames - Crying In The Ghetto / Winston Jarrett & The Flames - Too Much Confusion
• Winston Jarrett & The Flames - Humble Yourself / Gladstone Star Band - Get On Your Mark
• Gladstone Star Band - Don't Leave Me Alone
• Gladstone Star Band - Wicked No Like Selassie

like solid says, the studio one release "crucial times" is good too.

• Born To Be Loved
• Survival Is The Game
• Send Me Your Pillow
• Easy Come Easy Go
• Put On Weight
• Crucial Times
• Girl Like You
• Peace An Harmony
• Fear Not
• Spanish Town
• Top Ranking
• Do You Hear I
• Up Park Camp
• Scare Him

also "kingston vibrations" on ras is decent, radics backed, though wont set the world on fire with that one.

one love
