As I am a huge fan of Impact and Randys the following news is very good news (From the DanceCrasher site):
Clive Chin is putting together a box set of late 60’s Peter Tosh singles with help from UK record dealer Bob Brooks from Reggae Revive. All will be Randy’s productions except record 2 which is a Lee Perry production. The release date is slated for early March.
A. You Can’t Fool Me Again (RANDY’S PRE DYNA RANDY 414-1 (1969) JA(a Tosh vocal on an uptempo early Reggae rhythm, this was reissued on a Randy’s 7″ a few years ago)
B. Green Duck (RANDY’S PRE DYNA RANDY 415-1 (1969) JA(the same rhythm that was used on the UK produced Torpedo release Skinheads Don’t Fear, when I asked Clive about this he had not heard the Torpedo release before and had no idea how they got hold of the rhythm)
A. Rightful Ruler - Peter Tosh & U-Roy(UPSETTER PRE DYNA UPSETTER 718-1 (1969) JA / KEITH’S KR 200 B (1969) US **(some argue that this was the first tune U Roy voiced but there are competing claims on this, mainly the tunes for Keith Hudson or Lloyd Daley)
B. Memphis (SOUL REVOLUTION ALBUM (1971) JA/UK – FIRST TIME EVER ON 7″ **
A. The Return Of Al Capone (UNITY UN 525 A (1969) UK
B. Sun Valley (UNITY UN 529 A (1969) UK(Two cuts with Tosh on the organ. His playing is a bit of an aquired taste, Sun Valley (on the Everybody Needs Love rhythm) is particularly eccentric).
A. Little Green Apples (RANDY’S PRE DYNA VC 957 (1970) JA
B. The Crimson Pirate (JACKPOT JP 706 A (1970) UK(Crimson Pirate is an organ cut of Slim Smith’s Somebody To Love)
A. Stick Up - Peter Tosh & Count Machukie (RANDY’S DYNA VC 956-1 (1970)
B. Moon Dust - JACKPOT JP 706 B (1970)(Moon Dust is titled Moon Duck on the Jackpot issue, another organ piece).
A. Man’s Greatest Adventure – (PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED (1969)
B. Selassie Serenade - BULLET BU 414 B (1969)(Selassie Serenade is another organ cut, the rhythm is a fairly obvious one, probably from the Bunny Lee camp but I can’t place it at the moment).
A. 30-60-90 - RANDY’S RRM STUDIO 17-4 (1969)
B. Whistling Jane - RANDY’S DYNA RANDY 971-1 (1969)(a cut of Alton Ellis’s What Does It Take To Win Your Love, apparently with Jackie Mittoo on organ nd Peter Tosh whistling)
