January 20, 2006: Mannings Brothers (Abyssinians / Carlton and the Shoes)


The Abyssinians first recorded at Studio One in 1969, laying down their classic anthem Satta Massagana, which means "Give Thanks" in the Ethiopian language of Amharic. The group is composed of Bernard Collins and the Manning brothers, Donald and Linford. The Manning brothers' other brother Carlton was a talented singer at Studio One and leader of the group "Carlton & The Shoes" that included brother Linford.

This show features the sounds of these Manning brothers. I start off with some numbers recorded by Carlton & The Shoes at Studio One, then work into the sounds recorded by the Abyssinians. Sit back and enjoy these hymns of Rastafari...
