Moon Rocks!

Big thank you to that man Jah - until he asked after it in the comments I'd forgotten about 'Unite Jah People' / 'Have No Fear' by Moon Rocks and Prince Jazzbo! When I got home this evening I pulled it up and had a listen, and it is hot! Two really top-quality roots tunes with heavy bass, nice drums and wicked wicked horns.

This seems to have been the only record that Moon Rocks ever made, which is a bit of a shame really, and I've not been able to find any information on them at all. It's definitely one of Clem Bushay's very finest productions, and although Jazzbo's not at the top of his game, he's OK as well. As far as I know, there was never any real dub to these tunes, just what you get here.

Incidentally, Jazzbo cut two other sides for Clem Bushay around this time (1978) , 'Meet Me At The Street', 'Silhouette Gone Clear' (with Janet Kay, Rico and a really great mix!). 

Anyway, I've enjoyed these, hope you do too. I've been listening to some other Bushay productions while writing this; 'Rizla' by Owen Gray and 'Ruby & Diamond' by Dave Robinson - both highly recommended!

You are SO the man. Thanks.

Oh, and BTW--I would eagerly digest any Bushay's 12"ers you see fit to throw our way. Especially the other
PJ sides.
