A night of old-school Blues dance vibes coming up later in the month, as Japan's ska master Tommy from Rock A Shacka records meets London's foundation reggae journalist and collector Penny Reel.
Musical Fever is the name of this promotion and they describe their musical policy as "jazz and r'n'b through boogie-woogie, ska, rocksteady, reggae and roots; through soul, Latin and Afro"
If you heard Penny Reel DJ at Right On! a few years ago you'll know you can expect some serious ska rarities from this veteran collector who bought his first Blue Beat single back in 1961.
And as Rock A Shacka is the label that brought out the official reissues of Prince Buster and Gayfeet rarities and unreleased tracks a few years back, I would expect some real rarities from Tommy too.
Details as follows:
