March 18, 2005: Jack Ruby


Jack Ruby was one of those producers that I wish had produced much more music. I, as with many, discovered him through the sounds of Burning Spear's crucial album Marcus Garvey. Over time I came across more tunes from him and eventually Heartbeat put out a two piece set featuring his productions.

This show features a variety of his productions including popular artists like Ken Boothe, the Heptones, and the Gaylads as well as obscure groups like the incredible Skulls.

This show was mixed soon after Justin Hinds of the Dominoes passed away. He also did some work with Ruby over the years and is featured in the second half of the show.
