Track 5: Jah Shaka – Messenger Dub
Continuing to dig into Jah Shaka’s music after hearing a recommendation on Mastodon

Track 7: Shanique Marie – Ring The Alarm
Another track that caught my ear from the same compilation.
Track 8: Kat7 – Funk Schön Feat. Shanique Marie

Track 13: Gordon Lightfoot – Old Dan’s Records
The very first friend I made when I started high school after the family moved to Pennsylvania suggested I play something in honor of Gordon Lightfoot’s passing so I dug up this track.
