How the hell did the theme from Sanford & Son wind up on a reggae mix?
Cracked me up! Anyways, this edition of the Dub Session is worth getting.

“It’s the early 70′s. Kingston, Jamaica is abuzz with funky reggae sounds, new electronic wah-wah guitar pedals, moog keyboard synthesizers, and tons of funk-dafied reggae experimentation from King Tubby, Lee Perry, Bob Marley, Big Youth, The Skatalites, and the Pioneers. This episode of the Dub Session podcast takes a trip to Kingston’s early 1970s funky reggae era, with some great reggae covers and versions of funk tunes. Episode 40 kicks off with “Some Good Old Funky Music” from the Meters, and then hits us from the top like a “Crazy MotherFunky” featuring two duos with Bob Marley and Lee Perry – “Caution” and “Shocks Amighty.” The Funky Reggae era lasted in Kingston from 1968 until 1974.”

Great artwork of the Dub Session “Funky Kingston” mix! I love it!

I’m glad it inspired you to get Fred the funky Dread into a Jah-makin art piece. Nice!
