Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: Earl “Wire” Lindo Memorial 9-12-17

Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady listeners

Sadly, this is our third week in a row where we must memorialize another Jamaican music legend who has passed away. This week we give our deepest respects to the late great keyboardist, Earl Lindo, who sadly died on September 4th at the age of 64 in London. Lily and I have put together a two hour memorial featuring Wya’s finest work as a solo performer, as a member of the Now Generation, and as an artist backing everyone from Burning Spear to Joe Higgs to The Heptones to of course, Bob Marley and the Wailers on some of the most iconic reggae recordings of their era. We send our deepest condolences to Wya’s family, friends and fellow musicians. Rest in peace Wya. Love and respect, Generoso and Lily

Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: Larry Marshall Memorial 9-5-17

Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Friends,

Sadly, one day after we heard the news of the passing of Winston Samuels, we received word that the great Studio One vocalist, Larry Marshall had also left us. Marshall passed away on August 24th at the age of 75 in Florida, where he had lived since the 1990s. As we have often said during the past two decades on the Bovine Ska, Larry Marshall remains as one of the most underrated singers in Jamaican music history. At the halfway point of this week’s program, we will spotlight Larry’s extensive career as a singer, and we also looked at his wonderful production work for his labels: Amanda and Marshall. We send our deepest respects to the family and friends of Larry Marshall during this difficult time. Love and respect, Generoso and Lily
