Feel Up Reggae MD #84 August 16-17th, 1981 KTIM Bim!

Rita’s “One Draw” JA 12″ debuts after Bob’s “I Know” posthumous song & “Ego Dub” premiere, + new Bunny Wailer & Peter with equal justice over all in Midnight Dread’s first ever regular 3 hour show as aired live from 11pm-2am. Part One:


Ten star music from Ranking Toyan & Little John, The Techniques, Grace Jones dub out with Sly & Robbie and JA bedroom talk, The Meditations open up the poor man rich man conversation with a call for “Justice” followed by Pablo Gad’s amazing “Poor Man versus Rich Man Dub”. Errol Scorcher’s new top ten hit “Sounds Of Honorable Marley” pays tribute. Pimper’s Paradise dub version feeds the ego. The Bush Doctor is coming to town for three shows…





The Paragons stride to the top inna rockers version of “Riding High”. Blue Riddim nails the Sam Cooke classic “Twisting The Night Away”. The Techniques “Linger Awhile” but gun fever and Black Uhuru’s “Carbine” intervene making a farce out of security. The groups cry out for more.



Check the full lyrics on the back JA cover of Bob Marley’s last song intended for release after his passing. Jah know. Waiting in vain no more. Then it’s Rita Marley to the rescue with a masterpiece “One Draw” teaching them and learning by asking the children to think about what they did over the holiday. Ask no question, tell no lie! In the Reggae Calendar Peter Tosh plays 3 bay area shows, Circle Star (in the round on a spinning stage), Berkeley Community Theatre (site of many 1960’s events), & Sonoma State (in The Commons) later the next week. Coming in hot with Santa & Fully Word Sound Power live now even though Sly & Robbie on latest Rolling Stone release Wanted Dread & Alive.
