23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : the ’70s : Side A (part 1)

MayMixTape70-SideAPart1It’s May, that means it is time for another 90min digital mix tape, broken into 4 parts, with a decade spanning theme, this time it is the 1970s! Not gonna lie, this’ll be an odd month. Ska was really winding down in Jamaica in the early ’70s and wouldn’t pick up in a big way until the late ’70s in the UK. So it’ll be an odd mix, but an important one in representing some ska history.

02:23 – Derrick Morgan – Rasta Don’t Fear (Rasta Don’t Fear ’74)
