Cold Sweat - Reggae & Flute (mix)
March 18, 2013 12:02PM


After playing Ramon & The Crystalites to a friend we got into some sort of quest: which reggae tunes do you know that feature a flute? We found loads of good tunes and many people joined us, unearthing many great and obscure goodies.

This is a mix of reggae tunes with flute from my own collection. Enjoy!


Ramon & Crystalites - Chapter three psychedelic train
The Dynamites - John Public
Tommy McCook - KT88
Hopeton Lewis - Express yourself
Natty Locks - Luke lane rock
Clive Hunt - Super cool
African Brothers - Righteous Kingdom
Wayne Wade - Jahovia's Rally
Lopez Walker - Lost in a dream dub
Trinity - Di gun gun fever
Tommy McCook & Harry Mudie Allstars - Drifting witha flute
Revolutionaries - Black diamond rock
Burning Spear - Live good
Cedric Brooks & Light of Saba - Rebirth
Skatalites - Heaven's gate
Pablo Moses - Come mek we run

Will definitely give this a spin. Ian Anderson got me hooked on flute long ago, and always on the lookout for good flute tunes.

My favorite reggae track (so far) with flute is Little Flute Chant by the Upsetters/Brad Osborne And The Towerchanters (credits vary, definitely a LSP/Black Ark recording).

Maybe one of the best-loved reggae songs with flute as an integral part of the arrangement is John Holt's "Ali Baba". How it answers the horn line is nothing short of magnificent.

Thanks guys. Glad you like it!

Yes, Stamina, Ali Baba is great flute tune! Left it out because I featured the riddim in another mix recently. Should've been in this one, though. cool smiley

Diggin this thread man, some great obscurities on this mix. I guess the flute version of Bend Down Low was not obscure enough or too obvious for this mix. Nice work Cold Sweat!

Thank you, Pale Rider. Much appreciated.

Obscurity wasn't on my mind when I selected tunes for this mix, though. Just tunes that I liked at that particular time. To be honest: I don't know the flute mix to Bend Down Low smiling smiley
Def gonna check it out though. Thanks!
