Amalgamated Records Part 6 — 10 Comments

  1. franco nero “the rhythm track reminds me a bit of The Uniques ‘You Don’t Care’
    actualy if you listen closely its the techniques “love is not a gamble”

  2. Hey Luke – I have the LP Reggae Jeggae and always assumed that the Immortals ‘Bongo Jah’ was just that. But it isn’t – check youtube for a track that is 100% akin to The Little Roys. Which begs the question; what the blinking flip is the (superior) track on Reggae Jeggae?? They also mistook Pioneers ‘Love Love Everyday’ for Errol Dunkleys ‘Love Brother’.

  3. top work you’ve done here!
    i have a ja JOGIBS “gold series” single with ‘The Destroyers – Danger Zone’ i could send you a scan!
    cheers
    stefan
