Music without end: Count C, The Wizard of the West

Make sure not to miss this: Soul of the lion have produced a documentary on Jamaican sound system operator Cyril Braithewaite aka Count C, who recently passed away. Expect highly interesting interviews with the man himself, King Sporty and Ken Boothe. After having recommended many documentaries here that were sometimes only partly intersting, let me be clear: You gotta watch this one. Sadly, it is hardly longer than 5 minutes. How nice it would’ve been to hear more precious memories of these great artistes.
Waxpoetics #48 contains a piece on Count C (and one about Roots Reggae legend Yabby You), too. Or read more about Count C here. Via magnificent Dancecrasher.

Tunes und ihre Geschichte (6): Ghost riders in the sky

Mehr als 50 mal soll die Country Nummer “Ghost Riders in the Sky” schon gecovert worden sein, unter anderem von Bing Crosby und Johnny Cash. Die obige Version von Carlos Malcolm und den Afro Jamaican Rhythms (Up Beat E4057) ist, wie sollte es auch anders sein, natürlich die beste. Western-style bildet nicht zuletzt dank Malcolm (der mit “Bonanza Ska” eine weitere, nicht so gute Westernnummer einspielte) in der jamaikanischen Populärmusik der späten 60er und frühen 70er ein eigenes Genre, wie auch Horror, Züge, Sozialismus, Black Power, Schweinskram und andere zentrale Themen im Leben.
