    • 1. Grand Father Bogle
    • 2. Grand Father Bogle (Version)

    One of Rudy Thomas few roots tunes. The Kingston born singer was better acquainted with softer lovers material than this lament for Paul Bogle the Jamaican nationalist and leader of the Morant Bay rebellion. It's a lovely tune with a flute nagging away that gives the song an unusual feel. Rudy Thomas worked at Joe Gibbs studio as an engineer and percussionist before moving on to a successful career as a lover’s rock artist. Produced by Lloyd Parks and come is a hand stamped bag.
