I realized recently that I had yet to post "The Big Remixes" album by my band, The Salads, on this blog; And what a better date to do so! ;)
This album consists of remixes, ranging in different styles, of songs from our 2006 album, "The Big Picture". We made "The Big Remixes" gradually available, song by song, as free downloads from our website (thesalads.com) throughout 2007. There were so many other friends and fans who are working on other remixes, but this album consists of the first 7 best remixes that we've received. Who knows, maybe someday we'll do a sequel....?!

A few days ago, on April 8th, Bob Marley's mother, Cedella Marley Booker, died of natural causes at the age of 81. My heart goes out to all the Marley families. All the best through this time.
In honor of Cedella... I didn't even realize that she ever released an album until I found this one online a few months ago. It came out in 1991, and it's a good listen!
Check it out...enjoy....and blaze one in honor of Bob's Mom!

The Soul Jazz Records label has released 6 volumes of this "Dynamite" series of reggae, ska, soul, rocksteady, funk, and dub classics from Jamaica. Here is volume 4 (aka 400%), which is one of my favourites! If you dig this one, definitely check out the other 5, as they're very similar and wikkid collections. The guys/djs behind this collection are rad dudes too. I few years back I had the opportunity to share some Canadian homegrown with these lovely English blokes while they were on a DJ tour performing in Toronto. Good times! Can't wait for them to come back!
Diiiiiiig and enjoy...
