Tighten Up!

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 €).

  4. Strange things happening at Mediafire. ''This file has been identified as a copyright protected work and cannot be distributed using MediaFire.''

  5. Thanks for answer.In fact, it works fine for you because you are the owner of the link.But since mediafire" found it was copyrighted, other people are denied permission to downlad it.That's why I am asking you to re-up on another new Mediafire link, just to give us the time to get it.Many thanks in advance!

  6. @ Dial Afrika:

    Thanks for the music. It seems as if the blog formerly run by Jillem a.k.a "the Bishop" of the Music Vintage fame vanished the night of Obama's comeback. If you find our Vintage Music expert, please link to his new blog when it surfaces again.

    @ Jillem:

    We hope to hear that the Bishop's back soon. Missing those old time music vibes ...

    1. Jillem,
      please leave a message somewhere here when/if you'll be back! We hope so and we wish all the best!!!
