Today is Rico Rodriguez' birthday - all the best, Rico!
Rico emigrated from his native Jamaica to the UK. 50 years ago, in 1962 he started recording in London!
Michael de Koningh reissued one of Rico's first records in the UK, originally released in 1962 on the Planetone label, Rico's Combo with "Youth Boogie", as well as two other tracks with his contribution, Joe Mansano's "Life on Reggae Planet" and "The Bullet" on a CD which came with his book "Tighten Up! The History of Reggae in the UK" (2003, now out of print and sold at Amazon for up to 100 €).
