More Music

Hi,

Here's 'Keep On Skanking' by Winston Scotland. He hardly recorded anything (maybe 8 or 10 tunes) and has a unique voice and style. The tune is a version of 'Skylarking'. It has a great breakdown in the middle where the music fades out but the deejay keeps on going until the rhythm punches back in without even taking a breath.

The label's nice as well. One of the things I've missed since I sold all my old singles is the look of the labels, and all the old record company sleeves they used to come in.  I can't think of any other sort of music that has the same variety and quality of label art as reggae, and the way they were cracked, scratched, faded or covered in writing or termite shit made each one sort of unique. You don't really get that with mp3s, CDs or even vinyl reissues.

Haven't been able to find any info at all on Winston Scotland, and I can't remember who did the vocal version he's toasting over here. Be nice to hear from someone who does.
