Sleeper's Record Shack 8: Junior Byles (MP3 Review)


WWW, November 2007 - When he started the Versatiles back in the 1960's, Junior Byles was at the start of a carrier that would last over several decades and with that: styles.

In 41 minutes, Mick Sleeper provides a crucial introduction into the work of what he calls "truly one of Reggae's greatest vocalists": the man they call Junior Byles.

Starting of with a track made popular by Peter Tosh, moving forward to a special mix with Dr. Alimantado joining the Star of the 8th episode of Sleeper's Record Shack: the two first selections definitely set the tone for the rest of the show and that tone is just the right tone!

We'll hear early Reggae, Rockers, even crucial DUB, everything carefully mixed to give us an impression of the niceness Junior Byles gave to the people of the world.

You got to love this one as I would say!
