Reviews

  • Raymond Harper and his Golden trumpet - Ska-ta-brainRaymond Harper and his Golden trumpetSka-ta-brain

    Genius trumpeter Raymond Harper graced many records in the 60s. Everyone from Prince Buster to Duke Reid to Studio One used his musical dexterity. Pressed in the EU and very nicely presented. Top draw.
