The Bunny Lee 'Full Up' vinyl just arrived along with the Now Generation 'Cup of tea' vinyl 45
The new PSLP85 'Full Up' album should start to arrive at the Pressure Sounds store this week. The 'Now Generation' 45 'Cup of Tea' should also be arriving this week. The Love Power 'Jah Joe' Love on the seen' 10 inch might be another week or so. Vinyl is taking much longer to make so not much we can do.
The Full Up cd is now available direct from the Pressure Sounds website. The vinyl is not quite ready but should be available direct from us in a couple of weeks.
The Now Generation recorded as a house band for many of Jamaica's top producers. In particular Producers Herman Chin Loy, Lee Perry and Harry J. They had originally been formed as a live band but moved full time onto the busy Kingston session scene around 1972. The original nucleus was built around the brothers Mikey and Geoffrey Chung as well as musicians Mikey 'Boo' Richards, Robbie Lynn and Earl 'Wire' Lindo. 'Cup Of Tea' was one of the many excellent instrumentals the band cut. Recorded at Dynamic around 1970 the lead keyboard was later overdubbed by a musician called Joe Cooper and the single appeared on a Harry J release with 'Happy cause i'm going home' on one side and 'Cup of tea' on the flipside. There were a few white labels with Cup of Tea on one side and the Cup of Tea version on the flipside but it was never given a full release until now. Comes in a hand stamped bag on the original Mikey Chung 'Superstar' label. Its an exquisite example of how good the Now Generation Band were at their peak.
