Information

One of the best exponents of the more soulful side of Jamaican roots music Freddie McKay recorded for Studio One and Treasure Isle before working with various producers in the seventies.
‘Rock A Bye Woman’ is a rare self production with an uptempo feel and punchy horns. Seriously in demand on the revival circuit for a number of years the passionate vocal side is backed here with a riveting ‘high pass filter’ style version. Top quality music from one of reggae’s great unsung heroes.

Reviews

  • Barry Brown - Blackman should never turn his backBarry BrownBlackman should never turn his back

    Barry Brown roots produced by Ripton "Eek-A-Mouse" Hilton in the mid-seventies. Very rare tune to find but no re-issued by Gaffa Blue. Nice dub piece on the flipside of the same tune.

  • Wailers - Guided MissileWailersGuided Missile

    Drum machine led roots. There is a strong Lee Perry influence on this one. Not quite as over the top as Scratchs productions but never the less a good tune.
