Top single “Sure Thing” from St. Germain - Tourist LP…  a great vid, and greater tune.  I remember seeing them perform this live in Boston, shortly after the release of Tourist, led by French composer-producer Ludovic Navarre.  The 1-2 of jangly bluesy guitar riff over thumpin’ bass beat is a knockout combination on this track.  

An article that I wrote too many years ago, while living in New Orleans, now republished online for your reading pleasure…  and listening pleasure, if you can catch Ben, who still performs in New Orleans and recently released Delta Dub, and an album called Voodoo Reggae, a brand of his own sound and available on his site: http://benehunter.com/#/sounds/4537298877.

A great album cover, and a solid series of dub from Guidance, a label known for electronica.  I have the prior releases from the series on LP too… great dub cuts from new to roots…
I wondered who the yardie is in the photo? ‘Swing-A-Ling mobile record shack’…  well, I looked it up and it turns out he goes by the name ‘Charlie Ace’, real name Valden Dixon, who is also a musician/ producer and has performed with the Melodians.  Here he is featured in a documentary narrated by none other than Mikey Dread: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IalZ9qDJRjM   — big up!.

a wikkid dub-steppa…  a cover tune, but it still hits, great remix…

Goz the Great! A relative, Conrad Gozzo, that was once Frank Sinatra’s lead trumpet…  this CD is a comp. of him performing as headline.  Great, classic, big-band jazz…
