Lee Perry is the only guy who could clear his throat in time to the riddim and make it sound crucial. I don't know where I have that but couldn't find it on youtube just now. Might be on one of the Baked Tapes compilations.


I think its a different take of this riddim:

Keith Richards is probably the only Rolling Stone who sincerely put his heart into reggae both as a guitarist and singer, judging some (live) versions here.

Here Keith even admits Mick was into reggae before him...but this video shows Mick's knowledge and love of Jamaican music
interview

yeah man thats my brother Earl Chin on Mike Cacia's Rockers TV cable program. Mick has always kept up on things, popular culture, his buddying up with Protege not too long ago is an example. And of course that whole Walk and Don't Look Back fiasco.

But as far as being into the music itself, I don't agree. Its been keef or ronnie at the forefront of that in the band. Wingless Angels being just one example of how deep. And guesting on session after session for bonafide vintage reggae artists since the 70s. I wonder who chose Half Pint's Winsome for their catalogue?

By the way that eight minutes or whatever is a distillation of the actual interview which lasted about an hour. There were some um imperfections in the other footage and it has never been shown. Earl baby is not the best of influences sometimes but I suppose they didn't really need the influence to go on so.

Hey yeah there was a great three-part interview
on Roger Steffen's site where Keith spoke about
Wingless Angel stuff ... How he and Mick would
visit some of London ska clubs in 60's and how
he first saw the Harder They Come in Kingston theatre and
during film rasta boys where aiming pistols at the screen ....HHHhaaaa


Somebody might be able ta track Steffen interview it down ....

As much as I like the Stones reggae songs I think that they always do good songs but not always good reggae. Cherry Oh Baby is definitely what we used to call cod reggae.

The interview was on some special deluxe release of something or other, I forget exactly, maybe the Wingless Angels set. I was at Rojah's house one day and he offered to let me watch it but I did not have the time so instead he just summarized his day with Keef for me. It was an interesting day from what he said what with Jane Rose coming first to check the place out before she gave the ok for His Keefness to enter the premises. Wanted to make sure there were no hangers-on (such as myself) in the area.

That bit about rudies shooting up the spaghetti western movie screens is a well known, often told story. I wonder just how much of Keefs first hand experience was actually just a distillation of all the stories anyone deep into reggae would have heard over and over. I certainly know I heard those stories on my first visit to the island and was actually taken to a theatre it was commonplace in in Kingston and also in Mandeville.

I also forgot about that Lee and Molly track, that does have some pretty distinctive keef riffing on it.

I begged Rojah to let me attend the interview and maybe help out somehow, but, uh, no. We (rojah, his wife Mary, and myself) also cruised the Wiltern one night when the stones were playing there but couldn't get past all the security. More failed attempts at greatness or at least an interesting experience.

Had plenty of fun times over at his place, including a couple long weekends helping him digitize his audio and video collection, and interesting people always dropping in, as one can imagine. Rojah himself is a very interesting cat with a lot of diverse experiences including testifying before Congress about the futility of the Vietnam situation. Although he specialized in the Marley trade, he has always said his favorite singer was Alton Ellis. Gotta respect him for that, he has always had good taste in music.

Long long time ago but I'm sure that the
Roger Steffens/Keith interview that I'm
referring to was a phone interview and now
thinking about it more it may have been available
on Keith's official site when it first cranked up .....

Not sure I understand you here Rockman, there is the photo of KR at Rojahs place in Echo Park, the interview I am speaking about was available somewhere as a dvd. That photo may even be a still from it. I regret I flaked on the chance to actually sit there and watch it, I was hoping for a copy to take home but Rojah didn't feel comfortable with letting one out at that point, could have been a condition of the interview in the first place. It was a pretty tightly controlled deal.

I do think I recall a phone interview prior to that though so maybe thats what you are thinking of. I may even have a copy of it in my archives somewhere.

Did some looking around, here is part 1 of the dvd that came with the SD wingless angels set, this contains some footage of the interview at Rojahs house and a bunch more voiceover of the interview over other footage





I thought for sure there was a special edition with the entire filmed interview on it but cannot find it so guess not.

Justin Hinds was one of the nicest people I ever met. Got to hang around with him for a weekend or two and it was a pleasure talking to him,

No different interview ..... as i say it was
a very very long time ago ... It was a phone interview
between Roger and Keith .... Pretty sure Keith was
phoning from London and it was three part audio available
for some time in the early days of the official Keith Richards site....

Remember Keith talking about Angels ... him and Mick
going to London ska clubs .... first seeing Harder film ... etc

love ta hear it again ....

okay on with the show ............

I am going to give rojah a call tonite and see whats up. I now think I recall the whole interview was going to be released verbatim in the super deluxe set, but at the last moment it was scrapped and the actual film production was done. Gonna verify that too, its got me curious about whatever happened to the interview footage or if it ever got put out.

thanks for bringing this up.
