Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: The Solid State Label 12-1-20

Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Friends,

As we are now in the thick of the holiday season and as we miss Toots Hibbert so very much, we thought to start with The Maytals’ 1964 ska for Studio One, “Christmas Feeling Ska.”  We followed that set of ska with another set that began with a recently unearthed cut from Derrick Morgan and Patsy Todd, “Raindrops Falling”  The mento set soon followed with another cut from that wonderful 1978 Horace Johnson and The Eagle Star LP, “Paradise Island,”  Lily’s reggae set ended the first hour with a highlight being the Hortense Ellis sung take on the “Movie Star” riddim, “Super Star,’ and our label focus for this week was on the late 70s imprint, Solid State. Stay healthy and peacefl XO Generoso and Lily
