Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from September 16, 2021 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

this Babylose is in place of last week's "Fire fe the Vatican", which does have a B-side (a toast by Jah Lion if i recall) but i was seduced to play this instead, partly because it contains elements that made it into Scratch's "Soul Fire" & Niney's "Blood & Fire"

@Aitch: the smoke was so central to Perry's practice in the 70s, it is said that he would blow smoke into the mic so that it would "enter the music" – I believe this can be heard on several recordings

also there's apparently a "red" and a "white" calliloo. there was an old jamaican guy neighboring me at the community garden that said one is much better than the other. i don't remember which one he said is better.

Callaloo is made from many leafy greens, from water spinach, to pokeweed, even leaves from okra (not a species specific plant, but only for the finally taste). It has to be steamed or boliled many times (due to toxins in the leafs), usually w/ other veggies and spices for flavor.

very cool to hear Bob & Lee trading bars on a song made much more famous by Dave Barker (w/ Perry's production of course). His vocal can't really be improved on but this is still cool

always cool to hear the Norman Whitfield / Temptations influence on Jamaican music
