Cool stuff

Hi there

I am hoping you will be able to assist me with a search that has spanned some 30 years now.

During 1984/85 I was in the Defense Force in South Africa. A friend used to have a cassette tape that we would "chill out" to most nights. I cannot remember the title so it has made looking for it very difficult indeed. It was a continuous mix tape meaning there was essentially only one track on each side. It was 'old school' reggae/ dub - each track running into the next in a 'medley' format. Some of the songs included were "Love of the Common People"; Rat in my Kitchen"; "Barbados"; "Dreadlock Holiday"; “Fattie Bum Bum”; “OK Fred”; “Uptown Top Ranking”; “Big Seven” etc. I don't think it was the original artists - I think one group did the entire recording - but I may be wrong.

I work as a Radio Presenter today so understand what it's like when a listener cannot remember a song title and expects you to find it for them but finding this particular recording will be like finding gold for me. It was a very special time in my life and that particular cassette forms part of the 'soundtrack' to it. It could have been released in the early 80's or somewhere in the mid to late 70's. I do not think it was a 'current' recording at the time. The cassette was purchased at a Supermarket (Checkers) in Port Alfred, South Africa in 1980/81.

I am still in contact with the friend but he cannot remember what it was called or what became of it.

Any leads will be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Gary

I know you think it w as frontline released

You could look here

en.wikipedia.org/wik…%29

You could look for cover tracks of dreadlock holiday on amazon

like this

I wondered if it's called the sunshine mix but that might be released too late (1989)
