If this is for real I’m well made up…

From an email I got today:

Subject: TIPPA IRIE GREETING

YOR SIR,
LIKE WHAT YOU DID TO ME AND KERNAL LRYIC
SOUNDS INTERESTING
BLESS

I’d just like to say, regardless of this email, that Tippa Irie is one of the all-time greats and playing about with his and Daddy Colonel’s lyrics was fantastic fun.

Entirely coincidentally…

Here’s a new version, slightly cleaner and groovier version of the main mix of “Tippa and Colonel Again”.

And here is “Tippa and Colonel Again — 1985 vs 2005 Dub Mix”, a rather tasty high tek mix. If the original is a fat loping growler, this is a much spacier cut with slo-mo junglizms all over it. I like it even more than the original.
