Virgin Vinyl ?



I love this ad. Not exactly sure what they mean but. It reminded me of a story about the Caribbean music scene. Island music is great whether Caribbean, Tahitian, Balinese, or Bahamas. The tragedy is what I heard about Jamaica. They don't have alot of money for producing records so for the records that don't sell they were melted down and reused. This is a travesty. Prince Buster of Jamaice doesn't even have a copy of every song he ever made for this very reason. That is sad because he ran his own record label. I'll stop ranting and give you another glimpse of the twins.....

  1. Not only that but they would cut up old Kelloggs boxes to make the sleeves, turn them inside inside out & paste a cover onto the cardboard. I used to have a Studio One release like that.

  2. I haven't heard that but I'm not surprised. A friend said even if you got the 45s freshly imported that they were still very rough.
