In Guyana: The Primacy of Hope – By Dave Martins + Guyana Medley by The Tradewinds

By

In years past, hearing outside about my country’s difficulties, I would come home to Guyana with Tradewinds to play music, or just to visit, often very concerned that I would find a joyless, dispirited people. It would be in my mind often as I was setting up the tours. I recall particularly the reactions to the endless lines in the “shortages” days, when even toilet paper was on ration. Instead, I would come home and find Guyanese, certainly complaining, but also upbeat, showing exuberance, finding things to laugh at.        Continue reading

Bob Marley

As Tuff Gong releases a limited edition series of Marley albums, we pick the greatest work of reggae’s biggest star

THE GUARDIAN – by 19 November 2020

30. Rude Boy (1965)

Tellingly, given the socio-political songs that lay ahead of him, Marley focuses on the deprived circumstances that birthed the phenomenon: “Want it want it – can’t get it, get it get it – no want it.”                Continue reading

By: The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again (Shepperton Studios / 1978)

LISTEN TO THE LYRICS- Still relevant after 50 years. Have things changed???. They do not make songs like this anymore. I saw them live (1982), in Toronto. Brought back memories when looking at the 2020 USA Presidential Elections… that is why this song is featured here. (Cyril Bryan)

Commentary: Mixed bag – By Dave Martins

By Dave Martins –  August 2, 2020 – Stabroek News

Any writer of a regular column will tell you of the variety of items that you put away, intended for another day. Like today. I must tell you, before I forget, to definitely watch a post my musician friend George Jardim has posted. It’s Dire Straits’ Sultans of Swing, ukulele acoustic stuff (don’t let the word “ukulele” distract you; it is indeed “intense rhythm” coming at you non-stop. (see video below). I don’t know where Jardim finds these things). It’s not long, three and a half minutes or so but check particularly around 1:30 for some real fireworks.      Continue reading
