Jamaica Bad Pun For The Title? Yes. I Did.


If you're coming to this album to get your Bob Marley fix I'm afraid that you will be disappointed by this 1971 album. It takes the "folk" in the title fairly seriously (except when it's going very orchestral choral).

From the back sleeve:
This is the second L.P. released by the Jamaican Folk Singers. A few favourites from their previous L.P. have been included but even these sound new as the group continues to grow in love and understanding of Jamaica's Folk Music. The Jamaican Folk Singers continue to generate interest in their country's folklore as they perform for widely differing and enthusiastic audiences at home and abroad.

This sounds like a gem. I'm not big on world music albums, but this I'd imagine would make for interesting listening. Not too many of this nature in my own music collection, but I do have a few of these niche albums.

It was good to hear from you at my site. I was looking to see if there is a way to subscribe to your site in order to be notified when new posts go up, but didn't see anything. Hard to know when you do post.
