    It was in may 2014 I made this compilation especially for the GG.
    I just discovered it has mysteriously disappeared however. Why
    and how ? .. you tell me, I have no idea. The compilation contains
    6 of my favourite 12″ singles from the eighties, six singles with
    tracks I used to play a lot in those days. Over the years more of
    my precious posts have vanished strangely, if you remember
    one that is gone too, please remind me so I can Re-Post it.
    A pure coincidence I find out on a sunday by the way.
    Also pure coincidental is the presence of track # 13,
    Nothing to do with the fact that
    tomorrow is Blue Monday,
    better take # 6 ..

    Het moet in de maand mei van 2014 geweest zijn dat ik ‘m heb
    gepost. Ik kwam er echter zojuist achter dat ook deze post op
    mysterieuze wijze van de GG is verdwenen. De compilatie bevat
    zes van mijn favoriete 12″ singles, zes singels die ik in die tijd veel
    plachtte te draaien. Zo door de jaren zijn er meerdere posts op
    vreemde wijze verdwenen. Mocht jij je er een herrinneren die
    weg is, als je het me meldt plaats ik ‘m direkt opnieuw.
    Puur toeval dat ik dit op zondag ontdek overigens.
    Ook puur toeval is de aanwezigheid van track # 13,
    niets te maken met het feit dat het
    morgen blue monday is,
    beter is # 6 ..

    Normally I don’t post a lot of popmusic. September the 6th, Pink
    Floyd’s drummer Nick mason is coming to Amsterdam with his

    doing so, enjoy this piece of nostalgic popmusic with me.
    Songs from 1967, 1968 and 1969..

    Normaal gesproken plaats ik nauwelijk pop muziek hier. Deze uitzondering
    moest echter gemaakt worden. Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason komt op
    6 september a.s. naar Amsterdam en zal dan een aantal van de nummers
    komen spelen die op ‘Relics’ staan. Ik kon de verleiding niet weerstaan deze
    te digitaliseren om hem onderweg te kunnen beluisteren. Vanzelf laat ik jou
    hier ook van meegenieten. Nummers uit 1967, 1968 en 1969..

    tracks ;

    Zo aan het eind van het jaar maken we altijd wat uitstapjes naar
    muziek die je hier niet zo vaak tegenkomt. Even los van de tropische
    stijlen. Verandering van smaak doet vaak goed en daarom vandaag iets
    van vroeger. Dit is een plaat die ik zeer veel heb gedraaid eind jaren 70
    en ook later in de 80er jaren. Ik was in de veronderstelling dat ik Solid
    Air van John Martyn al eens geplaatst had maar ik vergis me daar. Die
    komt zeker nog eens. Nu deze live registratie, opgenomen in Leeds in
    1975 aan de Universiteit en origineel uitgebracht in 1976. Dit is de her-
    uitgave uit 1987. Ga er eens goed voor zitten, je zweeft er volledig
    op weg, super sfeervolle plaat die je niet wil missen..

    Towards the end of the year we often take you in directions you’re
    not used to here at the Global Groove. Away from the tropical styles
    we normally post, variation is the spice of life they say so today some-
    thing completely different. This is an album I played very much at the
    end of the seventies and through the eighties as well. I thought I posted
    Solid Air by John Martyn already but appearantly I am mistaking. That
    one will certainly come one fine day. Today a live registration, recorded
    at Leeds University in 1975 and originally released in 1976. This is the
    re-release from 1987. Sit down and let it happen to you, the music
    floats away, very atmospheric experience you don’t want to miss..

    tracks ;

    01 – Inside out
    02 – Solid air
    03 – Make no mistake / Bless the weather
    04 – Man in the station
    05 – I’d rather be the devil

    Merger, front

    Merger, inside

    Not long ago I was watching a documentary on Youtube about the
    developement of reggae in the UK. I really liked it, the birth of two-tone
    for instance, wonderful video which I added below. It’s a great piece of
    history I enjoyed a lot. There is one group however of which I would
    have loved to find some footage in the documentary. This lp by Merger
    was a personal favourite in the early days and I think the group deserves
    a place in that story. One way or the other, it’s never too late to give
    them the attention deserved so here is 77 which is obviously their
    1977 lp. It brings back memories, were you there..?
    Get it & spread it..


    01 – 77
    02 – Ghetto child
    03 – Life song
    04 – Exiles ina babylon
    05 – Understanding
    06 – African lady
    07 – Have you heard ?
    08 – Waterfalls
    09 – Massa gana

    Jukebox Rebel - Un Tour du Monde

    Last week I received a mail by one of our loyal visitors from Glasgow,
    Scotland. He made a wonderful tribute to the great John Peel as a
    contribution to our page. It is nice to pass the mic for a change,
    ladies and gentlemen, I give the word to
    William, the Jukebox Rebel..

    Hello groovers, warm greetings from Glasgow where
    there are many music nuts just like Moos.

    I say THANK YOU to my host for helping to keep all these wonderful
    global grooves alive over the years – and for giving me a chance
    to share my mix-tape with you today. It’s a special tenth anniversary
    commemoration for the incomparable DJ of the World, John Peel.

    Of all the Peel eulogies since 2004, Billy Bragg said it best when he
    astutely surmised: “Throughout his career, John Peel defined independent
    music. Although he became an institution at the BBC, he was, in effect,
    running his own pirate radio station from within the Corporation,
    introducing us to music that could not be heard on any other radio show.”
    I listened to his nightly shows regularly from 1983 until his untimely
    death from a heart-attack on 25th October 2004, taping highlights and
    then following them up by purchasing the LP or CD whenever possible.

    During the course of his shows, John Peel brought the Planet closer
    together, with a weird and wonderful mix of all that was musically
    interesting – there were no borderlines in his musical world.

    He imbued me with a passion for musical adventure and opened my eyes
    and ears to the richness of the artists from all around our planet –
    and I could safely say that he is the main reason that I’ve ended up
    following the crazy Dutchman on this website.

    Most of the selections on this compile were actually featured in the
    John Peel show at some stage – and I feel sure that the few exceptions
    would also have done so, were they to have landed on his doorstep or
    in his time zone.

    I hope you can join me for this ’round the world celebration.
    Long live John Peel – the original, independent global groover!

    Peace out,
    The Jukebox Rebel
