Party Night

Here's a great party tune by the African Brothers. There's a good little bio of them on  Wikipedia, and there's an excellent compilation called 'Want Some Freedom' which gathers together most of their releases and is still available.

This song isn't really typical of their output, which tends to be a lot rootsier. I like it because it's a lot more of a party tune than stuff like 'Lead Us Father', 'Practice What You Preach', and 'Want Some Freedom' (all of them brilliant, but sometimes you need a break from that sort of thing).

I'm Your Puppet

Here's a great Jimmy London vocal from 1975, far superior to Glen Brown & Lloyd Parks' earlier version on the 'Slaving' rhythm. Jah Woosh recut this as 'African Sound' soon afterwards.

It's a very different style to James & Bobby Purify's original:

Computer problems are preventing me from posting too much at the moment (bad BIOS flash), but I hope you enjoy this.

Just a top tune - also provided the rhythm for Dillinger & Trinity's 'Rizla Skank', one of the finest deejay head-to-heads ever recorded.
