Pre-release 1979

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Here we have one of the oldest tapes I have around – dates back to the good days at Better Badges when we’d just got our Alpha hi-speed cassette duplicator. The great thing about this was that it was a magnet for rare and unreleased material, such as this, brought in by Steve Jameson – who long worked the counter at Rough Trade. I don’t recall details but he arrived from some studio (Street Level?) in a high state of excitement with this one containing brand new mixes of the Twinkle Brothers, Undivided Truth, Prince Hammer, and more importantly, Jah Shaka’s masterpiece ‘Kunte Kinte’. When I played it on Streamola even Ras Kush, who has got every single thing that Shaka has done, asked for a copy. Enjoy!
