Ruff Luxury 12: Midnight Ina El Salvador

Once again I welcome you to listen to another installment of the Ruff Luxury mixtape series.  This time we have a selection for the dub and reggae massive featuring some nice new finds and one or two old favorites.  At one of the local record shops around these parts a great collection of reggae stuff came in that had been soaking wet, so the record store guys salvaged what they could and left the sleeves out in the sun to dry.  It was sad to see so many painfully rare titles in such a state, but the upside is I was able to pick up a few things on the cheap that would have been  otherwise out of my price range.  The first four cuts on this mix are all taken from dub Lps that were in the wet collection Black Unity, Zion DubDubbing in the UK, and Don’t Underestimate the Force, The Force Is Within You.  “You Capture My Heart” is taken from Cornel Campbell’s 1979 Lp The Inspector General on the Toronto based Imperial label.  Cornel Campbell is really one of my all time favorite foundation singers, with so many great recordings spanning decades and an inimitable style that is immediately recognizable.  Prince Jazzbo and Leroy Stewart connect on “Step Forward” which came out originally in 1974 on a Count 123 forty-five (my copy is from a Prince Jazzbo comp).  I recently picked up this Heptones album A Place Called Love on Moving Target, not knowing anything about it, and was happy to find that it had some nice tunes, mainly just this one though, “An African Child”.  Continuing in the Boston reggae investigation, Zion Initation makes an appearance with “Society” from their Jah Light release.  And finally, “Midnight Ina El Salvador” from one of my most highly rated dub Lps ever: Junior Dan’s KTW Dub That pretty much concludes the rundown, I hope you enjoy the mix–tune in for more madness  in the weeks ahead.
