Black History Month #9 - The Pioneers

It's Black History Month #BHM - so every day I'll try and list a black artist or artist's that have influenced my musical tastes or become part of the soundtrack on my life in the UK. #BHM2021

Today No 9 The Pioneers - Long Shot Kick De Bucket

I first heard this filtered through the bedroom door of my friend "Basil's" sisters bedroom door. Its the sound that turned me on to Reggae and Ska.

Interesting trivia which I only learned about a month or so ago because I am in China. Basically Reggae Music was bought to us by a Chinese shopkeeper in Jamaica. See here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslie_Kong
