Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: Jamaica Sings the Songs of Pomus and Shuman 3-20-18

Happy Tuesday Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners!

You may not know the names, Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, but you know their songs: “Teenager In Love,” “Can’t Get Used To Losing You,” “This Magic Moment.” just to name a few. During their brief seven year collaboration from 1958-65, Pomus and Shuman became one of the greatest songwriting partnerships in American music history, as they wrote hit after hit for The Drifters, Dion, Ben E. King, Elvis Presley and Jamaica took notice. For this Tuesday’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady, we played two hours of ska, rocksteady and reggae covers from 1964 to 1977 of Pomus-Shuman from Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan, Laurel Aitken, Delroy Wilson, Dandy Livingstone. PLEASE ADD OUR SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST HERE ON MIXCLOUD or share wherever people want to hear the beautiful sounds of a young Jamaica! XOXO Generoso and Lily
