The Kingstonians - Natty Dread Special - CD and Mag

A great idea and long overdue. The Kingstonians are really only known for there debut album for Derrick Harriott - 'Sufferer' which came out on Trojan back in the late sixties, but Jackie Bernard leader of the group carried on well into the seventies. And its these titles that are included here. Some truly great tunes presented in a showcase style. Vocal and then dub. The magazine contains and interview and some great pics. Its just a shame that its not available somewhere in English. It would help sales of the project and it would The Kingstonians. Before the internet this kind of thing would be hard to do - but with websites its a lot easier. All it needs is some French loving reggae fans who know English!!!
