Wow, kick ass!

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm all alone..

Sweet. Rocksteady at its finest -- a truly "Groovy Situation". Rare as hens teeth, as I would say.

Great draw! My congrats to Warren & Co. for bringing these foundation singers to SNWMF!
If you all don't know, Keith Rowe of K&T has for many years hosted a reggae radio show on Saturdays from WBZC in NJ near Philadelphia that can be heard on the web.Here is a link to the show's info page. I don't have to tell you that the selections by him and his co-host Jerry O'Brien are excellent. There are also links on this page to his playlists and to podcasts, if you can't 'tune in' between 2-6 pm EST on Saturdays.

I have over 100 Sounds of the Carribean podcasts downloaded -- Keith Rowe's selections are tippy-top notch.

Walter, don't know why I never made the connection, is this Keith Rowe, of Keith and Tex, the one who did "Groovy Situation' for Scratch?

Last month I got to see Keith and Tex perform with Santa Davis on Drums, Fully Fullwood on Bass, and Tony Chin on gitz. Of all places, it was here in South Orange County at Don the Beach Comber, Sunset Beach. Trust me, it was extra nice. Ketih and Tex still have the same quality of voice and vibes. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

looking for that show on you tube.. couldnt find it.. i did find this one.. which shows, i assume, an equal amount of vibes.

note how the crowd knows every single word to all these songs.. you dont find that too much when it comes to early-modern jamaican music..

Don't think that's too uncommon BV, especially with Jamaican audiences. Even for a mostly American audience(ie Sierra Nevada) , there is a tendency to be able to sing along word for word; witness to Pat Kelly's performance in '08, there were people old and young belting out his hits as he sang them.

That's footage from the January 2013 show in LA, Junor Francis' Skamania party. The recording doesn't even begin to do justice to how wonderful it sounded in the place. Here's some from the pocket recorder stop that train. It was the real deal - note for note, tone for tone backing band (which is booked for SNWMF too!). They even brought a real Hammond organ. Keith and Tex sounded great and had a blast. Incredible harmonies! After the show they took pictures, signed records and mentioned how thrilled and thankful they were for the big turnout from hardcore fans (some coming from as far as Mexico and Mendocino). Same thing with the Derrick Harriot show a couple weeks later - people knew the songs and cheered from the first couple notes, sang every word and a few called out for tunes Mr. Harriot had long ago forgotten. Next up, Junor Francis has Errol Dunkley coming out for 2 shows at the end of March.
