Great show Prof - with a few of my own personal faves in there and some gems I had never heard. :lighta2:

Let me know if there are any errors in the list (if you can be bothered with all that), as bit of guess work involved here and there.

Jeez Chris - you did pretty well with the list, but I can't believe you couldn't distinguish between the originals and represses that I played :wink:
Natural Facts is on Neville Sounds, the Freddy McGregor is called I man a Rasta and is on Studio One, the Gunmen Coming to Town I have is on Studio One, my version of Nuff Respect is on Anchor, Mek Dem Come is a Nitty Gritty tune and the Bibby and the Astronauts I have is on their own Astronaut label. Thanks for doing the podcast and the list (I did a list but left it at home) and hope people enjoy it - let us know what you reckon if you have a listen :phones:

"Ten Commandments" !

Hehehe... I'd forgotten about this tune, it played on my iPod while on the bus the other day, made me laugh out loud!
Very funny, very good.

Will check this weeks Lawless Street for sure, but will have to wait for the podcast, from Coogee it sounds like you're broadcasting from the moon!

Yeah its a western Sydney t'ing! :lol:

Will definately role out Ten Commandemnets and I know the Professor is a fan of Hard Man Fe Dead (as am I), so it will get an airing too.

Listening through some of this stuff I'm in awe of just how good Buster was.

We are broadcasting from the moon, I live in the sky, Pipecock Professor. :beam: :beam:

Our signal died in the arse recently when we switched to stereo (prior to that we were in old school mono) and we lost a few loyal listeners including the Ambassador in Tempe and, it seems, our Coogee colleagues too. That's a real pisser for us and you - well done Chris for keeping the flag flown high via the podcasts.
