Big Mikey Dread has posted part two of his epic interview session with Steve Barrow over on his Pod-O-Matic site — bigmikeydread.podomatic.com. Barrow is one of the coolest guys ever, and it’s a treat to listen to both what he has to say and the tunes he’s playing.
If those three hours aren’t enough for you, my old zine Fat Bankroll actually did an interview with the man years ago too. I’ve kept it around and you can still check it out here. Pretty good stuff if I remember right.
And one more Barrow thing: The “Dancehall 2″ album he’s curated for Soul Jazz looks like it could be solid. Early B’s “History Of Jamaica” is on there and is pure genius of course.
