I predict that the voting system will make some strange rankings

Nard better than Donny Hathaway?

Still, Haboglabotribbin is a favorite

I hardly listen to this straight thru but there are joints.

I would like someone to breakdown the story behind that Jamaica Queens scene.
Gospel, Jazz, Reggae and R&B cats creating a distinctive feel/sound.

Just Chillin’ Out.

Big fave. One of the first records I bought online because I couldn’t wait any long for a copy crossing my ways the traditional way. I’m trying hard not to take it with me EVERYTIME I’m DJing but in most cases it ends up in my DJ-Bag. “Master Rocker” is the tune I like to play out most. Has been the ice breaker on many parties and often made people come over to the booth asking for more of that kind. “Haboglabotribin’” is perfect for making a slower re-start after challenging the crowd with very fast Jazz or Latin-Tunes. That intro is so goddam catchy that everybody just keeps dancing even if it’s at half the speed of the tune before. “Spinnin’” and “Chilling Out” are also big tunes.

I’d be interested in that, too.

As far as this record goes, I think it’s one of the best examples of that style done right. To be honest, the sound exemplified on this record is extremely hit-or-miss for me, and it misses more often than it hits, but when it hits, like it does on this record, it really works.

I only recently learned there’s a 45 for “Haboglabotribin.” I definitely need to get my grubby mitts on one.

I think some of the early GRP releases get that vibe right. Don Blackman is a big favorite and and the first two Tom Browne LPs have jams too.

In terms of quality I’m unsure but if you add nostalgic value I’ll clearly vote for NARD.
