Happy Birthday Rico | Neville Esson - Continental Shuffle

Yeah, today is Rico's birthday and we wish him all the best, health, good luck, lots of friends and, and and ... for another 50 years.

Listen to Shimmy & Twist from 1960, 50 years old but still fresh.

Rico, born 1934, is son of Cuban-Jamaican parents. He was raised in Kingston and attended the famous Alpha Boys School. He recorded since the late 1950s with all important Jamaican producers. This one was recorded for Lloyd Daley and was originally released on blank label with Neville Esson as featured artist. Is was reissued in 1994 on a CD called It's Shuffle'n Ska Time with Lloyd "The Matador" Daley on Jamiacan Gold. If you're interested in the whole CD, please let me know. It's actually not available.

Soon there will be more music from Africa on this blog site.

  1. Birthday is now, October, 17! I didn't know that a post dates from the day you prepare, and not the day you publish the post.
    Happy Birthday, Rico, again!

  2. Many, many, many thanks my friend. What a real treasure!

    Hugs from Colombia.
