    Jolly StewartRagga Muffin SoldierJamwax

    “Raggamuffin Soldier” was recorded at Channel One Recording Studio in 1983 with Soldgie as engineer and a rhythm track played by Jolly Stewart and Daniel “Axeman” Thompson. Growing up in the Waterhouse neighborhood of Kingston, Jolly Stewart obviously developed this singing style and gave us a killer early digital dancehall missile with pure conscious lyrics “Raggamuffin soldier, big ina your area...me no deal with badness, me nah deal inna war, me is a raggamuffin soldier...mi raggamuffin ina foreign, raggamuffin sit down pon di riddim...how you know the raggamuffin? Me no wear no gold chain, me no wear no gold ring...”. “Raggamuffin Soldier” was produced by Fitzroy Peterkin who also produced the digital lover tune "Angie".

    Soul of A Nation: Afro-Centric Visions in the Age of Black PowerSoul Jazz Records

    This album coincides with the massive new exhibition Soul of A Nation - Art in the Age of Black Power at Tate Modern, London.


    Watch Channel 4 news piece here

    Read Guardian feature here

    The album shows how the ideals of the civil rights movement, black power and black nationalism influenced the evolvement of radical African-American music in the United States of America in the intensely political and revolutionary period at the end of the 1960s following the assassinations of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and the rise of the Black Panther party.

    Featuring groundbreaking artists such as Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, Don Cherry, Oneness of Juju, Sarah Webster Fabio, Horace Tapscott, Phil Ranelin and many others, Soul of A Nation shows how political themes led to the rise of ‘conscious’ black music as new afro-centric styles combined the musical radicalism and spirituality of John Coltrane and radical avant-garde jazz music alongside the intense funk and soul of James Brown and Aretha Franklin and the urban poetry and proto-rap of the streets.

    The Soul of a Nation exhibition draws on the links between Black art forms – art, music, poetry - and how they came together during the civil rights and black power era as part of the wider black arts movement across the United States.

    Iconic African-Amercian revolutionary figures such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Angela Davis, John Coltrane, Muhammad Ali all appear in the radical artworks of Barkley L. Hendricks, Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Lorraine O’Grady and Betye Saar.

    Stuart Baker (founder of Soul Jazz Records) will appear with the curators on the panel of Jazz for Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power discussion at the gallery as part of the show. You can book a ticket for this event here

    The Soul of a Nation album comes with extensive sleeve-notes and exclusive photography in a large 36-page outsize booklet and slipcase. Double gatefold vinyl album edition comes with full colour inners + bonus download code and includes full sleeve-notes/photography.

    Phillip FraserAfrican LiberationArchive Recordings

     ONE OF THE TUFFEST PHILIP FRASER TITLES EVER, FINALLY GETS A LONG AWAITED RELEASE AND THIS ALSO HAPPENS TO BE THE FIRST 10 INCH VINYL FOR ARCHIVE RECORDINGS' BLACK LABEL- A WELCOMED INTRODUCTION AND A ROCK SOLID ROOTS TITLE TO KICKSTART THINGS.
    THE AFRICAN LIBERATION MASTER TAPE WAS MISPLACED AND EVENTUALLY UNEARTHED AFTER 35 YEARS BY THE LATE GREAT LINCOLN 'SUGAR' MINOTT!!!!
    A MUCH IN DEMAND TRACK MADE FAMOUS BY MICHAEL 'CHABBA YOUTH' GORDON'S STEREOGRAPH SOUND SYSTEM OUT OF BRIXTON, SOUTH LONDON, UK CIRCA 1980/81. 
    THIS TRACK WAS ONE OF STEREOGRAPH'S ACE-CARD DUB PLATES WHENEVER THEY WERE CLASHING WITH A RIVAL SOUND. MANY SOUND SYSTEMS HAD TROUBLE REPLYING, WITH AN EQUALLY SUITED TUNE ESPECIALLY AS THIS WAS A FIRM FAVOURITE AMONGST STEREOGRAPH FANS WHO REGULARLY REQUESTED A REPLAY (REWIND) OF SAID TRACK.
    THESE WERE THE DAYS WHEN SOUND SYSTEM SPECIALS WERE NON-EXISTENT AND THE DUB PLATE BUSINESS WAS LESS COMMERCIALISED.
    TOP TRACKS WERE SOURCED BASED ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SOUND AND A PARTICULAR PRODUCER/S. THE OPERATOR (SELECTOR) HAD TO KNOW THEIR DUB BOX WHENEVER THE DANCE BECAME TENSE AS ALL PLASTIC (VINYL) HAD TO BE LOCKED AWAY.
    STRICTLY 'RUB A DUB' HAD TO BE PLAYED WHICH WAS THE ORDER AS THE EXCLUSIVE TRACKS WERE INTRODUCED TO THE CROWD. THIS TUNE RANKS AS ONE OF THOSE TOP NOTCH SELECTIONS.
    VOICED AT CHANNEL ONE STUDIO IN KINGSTON, JAMAICA AND ENGINEERED BY MIXING SUPREMO BARNABAS. PRODUCED BY KENNEDY JONES (BROTHER OF SUGAR MINOTT) AND PHILIP FRASER.
