Another one, go to putumayo.com, then click "Our Catalog", then click "Caribbean", then "Jamaica", then "Midnight in Ethiopia" by Rico. But you'll have to buy it to hear it all and it's worth it too.

Hey Ben,
Was dub side what I heard at your place this morning? I was kinda mentally impaired due to last nights festivities, but I remember hearing some pink floyd that didn't really sound like pink floyd. Whatever it was it sounded good. Whos the artist(s)? Don't tell me it's the Dread Zeppelins. I ain't goin' for it!

Hey Ship! Glad you made it home safe. Yes. Dub side of the Moon is what it was. My brain won't let me think of who the artists are. Man. Damage! Off to the hang overpost for some cures!! I got to get some new eyes! I think I'm blind!

What is that noise? I can't put my finger on it, I know I've heard it before.

On your next visit to San Diego a stop at Trade Roots Reggae http://www.traderootsreggae.com is a must. Not to mention it's on Rosecrans St. (right on the way to the Bali Hai) off I-5, just before Sports Aroma Blvd. If you blink, you'll miss it.

Symarip. 1969, England, the height of the original skinhead craze. The bridge between Rock Steady and Reggae. "Skinhead Moonstomp", "These Boots are made for Walking", "Skinhead Girl", "Long Shot Kick de Bucket". "Put your braces together, and your boots on your feet". The shit.

When I saw the word "putumayo" I had to check it out. I went to the site and learned that the founder, Dan Storper, had visited the jungles of the Putumayo about three years after I had spent a month there. It's a rather enchanting place. No wonder he named his enterprise after it.

In 1971, I started out from a place called Mocoa in the eastern cordillera foothills of southern Colombia with a few fellow international relations student companions. First, we went overland to go down the Caquetá River that borders the Department of Putumayo on the north. We embarked from a small village on a tributary of the Caquetá catching a ride with a Comerciante (Jungle Trader). After a couple of weeks going down river we stopped at a riverside jungle air base (Tres Esquinas) and flew south to a big town on the Putumayo River (Puerto Leguízamo). There we hired another Jungle Trader (one of their businesses is water taxi) to take us upriver for a couple of weeks until we reached Mocoa where we'd started.

Couldn't make that same trip today without probably being kidnapped by guerillas and held for ransom. Early 70s was the perfect time there. Thought you might be amused.

Hey Gnomon, anymore stories of your jungle experience? I dig 'em.
"Midnight in Ethiopa" by Rico is one of my all time fave instrumentals. Listen to it loud with herb.....or not.

Preferably with!! Rico Rodriguez is a pioneer, he's been there from the start. He was taught by the legendary Don Drummond, trombonist of The Skatalites. He's played with almost everyone, from Prince Buster in the early days, to The Specials in the 2-Tone era, and beyond. A true legend in his own right.
