Dreader General MD #78 July 5th-6th, 1981 KTIM

All I & I have is one love, one heart, which Bob Marley & Blue Riddim follow LKJ’s Reggae Sounds with, after Big Youth targets No No No screaming & Black Uhuru’s gun youth warning. 1st time since 1st dreadcast.


After Gregory’s “All I Have Is Love”, one of his first recordings ever, & just before the fantastic foot-long forty-five of Johnny Osbourne’s “Folly Ranking” make way for Dennis Brown’s vital “Yagga-Yagga”, a crucial selection filled with truth & determination. Ites!



Peter Tosh premieres “Cold Blood” battering down another sentence off his latest WANTED DREAD & ALIVE preceding the one-derfull “John Brown” from Don Tinglin, a rare masterwork if there ever was one. Listen & bass UP! Bob Marley sings “Thank You Lord” from forward in the day leading into Rita’s incredible “Thank You Jah” update & version, calling for Prince Fari to uncork “Mighty Ruler” and invoke the word sound power of Jah. Boom shot after boom shot. Then it’s Midnight and time for this week’s theme: DREADER GENERAL!!!




MD has another prescription for the pressure. The Reggae Calendar’s full up events include Jack Miller playing with Tony & Fully who also open the shows. Next week the best reggae records of the summer of 1981, right here, years ahead on Midnight Dread, with The Sounds of The Centuries. Hear, today, & every where. Jah know.


In last week’s Midnight Dread program Bob demos Babylon Feel This One. Fools die for want of wisdom. How the west was won at midnight. Tough tight & dread-casting over the air since 1979 & online since 1996 dreader 21st Century Midnight Dread programs air daily at 12am including replays often heard in his Best of All Worlds high noon slot and where one can also become conscious at 6am with the indigenous sounds of Native Son Rising, all curated by Doug everyday, all times Pacific. Many more Midnight Dread sights & sounds here and on this blog’s Midnight Dread page.
