Struggle

IMG_1159.JPGIMG_1166.JPG

Little Kirk has quite the cult following among digi heads, and deservedly so, his output as a young singer was strikingly good. His classic first LP is finally available as a limited edition repress here - Livity Records.

Philip Myers' output was limited to a handful of small-press 45's, of which this is his best. Released out of the tough neighborhood of Seaview Gardens in the Kingston 11 district of Jamaica, the tune sounds very much of its time and place. It's sparse, bass-and-keyboard heavy production and youthman singer's voice epitomize what is best about early digital productions.

WNYU Reggae Show 89.1 - Some Rare Digi

IMG_0059.JPGIMG_0058.JPG

Give thanks to Mush 1 at WNYU for putting me on the air recently to play some digital tunes. I got to play nineteen songs total and had fun. The show is archived here, WNYU.ORG, complete with playlist.

Here are a couple of 45's I brought to the show (only the Prophet got played) . . .

More 45's Found In Japan . . .

2006_0124Japan45s0013.JPG2006_0124Japan45s0014.JPG

Two big early digital 45's crossed off the wantlist. Both found cheap too, compared to online prices. I guess if you spend dozens of hours in Japanese record shops you're bound to come across a bargain or two (though most of my haul was more in line with going rates). These are personal favorites of mine, take a listen.
