Diseases Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound | Episode 66

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim is featured here.

I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled “Mad Mad Mad” produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad Mad.

This mix starts with Mad Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. Thank you for listening to the #ReggaeLoverPodcast

King Kong, Nitty Gritty, Half Pint and Tenor Saw: Featured Reggae Singers

This was a listener requested mix consisting of the biggest tracks from 4 singers: King Kong, Half Pint, Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty. Ray said he thought these artists sound alike and that called for a mix with their hits.

Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 16 – King Kong, Nitty Gritty, Half Pint, Tenor Saw

Their voices are easily distinguishable to my ear, but I agree that Tenor Saw and Nitty Gritty sang with a very similar and unique style.  King Kong ended up copying that style of vocal delivery, but Half Pint carved out his own lane on the way to enormous success in the 1980s and 90s as a reggae crooner.

RIP to Nitty Gritty and Tenor Saw whose likes were cut down way too early. This is a dedication to you and every reggae lover.
