OLDIES SUNDAY: David Isaacs – Good Father (1969)


Today around the world, Fathers, Dads, Pops, Papas, Papis, StepFathersUncles, Grandpas, and big Brothers are being celebrated on Father’s Day. While not many see today as a negative one, we celebrate the real Fathers who do everything to have a great presence in the life of their child/children. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Recording Artist David Isaacs with the track, “Good Father“.

Produced by Lee “Scratch” Perry and released through the Upsetters Label in 1969, David Isaacs shares some of the things a good Father does. David shares his signature vocals throughout with the help of backup Singers, and Lee “Scratch” Perry’s thumping production compliments the song well. Not many songs have been released celebrating Fathers over the years, but appreciation is shown for those that made it to the mainstream.

For those who have been called Deadbeat Fathers, Absent Fathers, “Sperm Donors”, and the like, you need to wise up! There are so many who wish to have their Fathers present but are unable due to tragedies and other reasons, but you chose to abandon those who really need you. There are even some of you who take on the Stepfather role to someone else’s kids while you ignore yours. We could’ve had a lot more songs for Dad had you lot done what you’re supposed to do. If you were called any of the above names, DO BETTER!

thank you David Isaacs for this track! Happy Father’s Day!

.@MusicalYouth30’s “Pass The Dutchie” Featured In @Stranger_Things Season 4!


On May 27, the popular Netflix series “Stranger Things” premiered its 4th season. The series finds a group of kids experiencing various supernatural beings and events in 1980s Indiana. The new season was highly anticipated, and has been one of Netflix’s most watched products. While season 4 highlights plenty 80s aesthetic, the soundtrack also highlights some of the hits from that decade. One of the hits however, is a Reggae classic.

In episodes 4 and 6 of “Stranger Things” season 4, British boy band Musical Youth’s 1982 hit, “Pass The Dutchie” was featured. Produced by Peter Collins, this is a song about facing extreme poverty. This song was redone version of the Mighty Diamonds’ hit “Pass The Kutchie. More info on the track can be found here. The single has been been a historic one as it helped with Musical Youth being the first black group to have appeared in a Studio segment on MTV. We previously highlighted the track being featured in a South Park episode.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Mighty Diamonds – Right Time (1975)


This past week, we lost two Jamaican Music Icons. Gone are 2/3 of the legendary Mighty Diamonds, Donald “Tabby” Shaw, and Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson. While their passing has left an indelible mark in Jamaica, we want to keep them alive through the music. For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we highlight their track, “Right Time“.

Produced by Jo Jo Hookim for Channel One Studio and released in 1975 through the Impact! Label (and through the Locks Label in the UK), Mighty Diamonds’ “Right Time” became one of the group’s biggest and most known single. With smooth production, the group spoke of Marcus Garvey’s prophecies, and everything will change for many when the right time comes. “Right Time” was featured on the group’s debut album of the same name in 1976 through Virgin Records, a label that plays a major part of the group’s history and helped their International push as they were some of the first Reggae acts signed there. The Mighty Diamonds celebrated 50 years together in 2020, and was the longest group together in Jamaican music. With their name pressed in every part of the globe, their breakthrough really came at the “right time”. R.I.P. Donald “Tabby” Shaw and Fitzroy “Bunny” Simpson.

thank you mighty diamonds for this classic!

Azizzi Romeo Taps Into Romance & Emotions On The “Catharsis EP”


Love is something special, isn’t it? History has shown us many episodes where love has affected humans in ways. For upcoming Recording Artist/Producer Azizzi Romeo, the idea of romance has prompted him to make music about it. From making one song soon turned into multiple tracks, and today we get to see it in a project form called the “Catharsis EP“.

Consisting of 7 tracks, Azizzi Romeo’s “Catharsis EP” was released through Charmax Music (owned by his father, the legendary Max Romeo). “Catharsis” refers to the process of releasing strong or repressed emotions, and Azizzi utilizes the action to its fullest throughout the EP. He shares a story of romance, with each chapter being an emotional episode. “I wanted to create something romantic. And I also wanted it to be honest.” Azizzi shares. “I ended up pouring out my emotions on some of the tracks. Midway through the creative process, I realized I was purging myself of the past, my mind had become as light as a feather. I had confronted my inner demons and subjugated them. So I decided to name the project ‘Catharsis’.” The production featured on the “Catharsis EP” taps into AfroPop, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop, and R&B sounds, and provides great backdrops to Azizzi’s smooth vocals, and unique lyrics. The “Catharsis EP” is the follow up to his “Reggae Royalty EP“, which was released in 2020.
