REAL ROCK 50 RIDDIM | Bassment Music International Records

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of probably the most popular reggae riddim of all time, Bassment Music International Records outta Belgium relicked the “Real Rock” instrumental.

The original, being produced by Coxsone Dodd, got released in 1968. The relick features Riddim Twins Sly & Robbie, Sound Dimension guitar hero Ernest Ranglin; Firehouse Crew keyboard/guitar player Wrong Move; the late and great veteran percussionist Scully; the magnificent Ansel Collins playing that signature three-note Hammond organ figure in a fine style; and last but not least you’ll hear trombonist Vin Gordon blowing the very same instrument he used on the original Studio One recording.

Foundation artists Ken Boothe and Willie Willams voiced the riddim and Canadian Canadian saxophone player Isax did an intrumental version. DR out December 21, 2018
