March 12, 2010: Johnny Clarke part 1


For part one of this Johnny Clarke series, I start off with the quintessential flyers tune, "None Shall Escape The Judgment" and its various versions. This tune originally was voiced by Earl Zero with Johnny Clarke singing backup vocals, but that version was never released. The song up next is the snarling "Don't Trouble Trouble" as well as the thundering dub version, which is one of my favorite examples of Tubby hard at work. Then we get into another prime Bunny Lee production, "Enter Into His Gates With Praise" followed by other Striker productions "Play Fool Fe Get Wise" and "Peace and Love In The Ghetto." After that we get into the utterly sublime "Time Is Short" with its brutally smooth dub version featuring vibes. Two sentimental tracks up next, "Age Is Growing" and a relick on "Memories By The Score" that always reminds me of the first time I heard the dub in this mix, hanging out on the porch of a friend's house overlooking Yeoville in Johannesburg, South Africa. Like Jazzbo says, "good memories baby." Up next, something from the Keith Hudson camp, "Go and Cry" by the Emotions, along with the Heptones and Johnny Clarke cuts on the riddim. Another Bunny Lee track "Blood Dunza" and a relick on the "False Rasta" riddim wind up the show.
