Wayne McGhie (bottom right, holding microphone) has passed away this afternoon in Toronto from health complications. Born in Montego Bay in 1947, he was a true pioneer of Jamaican and Canadian music, yet still unknown by many. I was asked by his sister and care giver Merline to let the music world know of his physical death, an honour which I do not take lightly. I have written a historical memorial at VIN (link in bio) as I cry. The Sounds of Joy LP is on my turntable and we're not done yet (VIN001 soon come 🙏🏻)... I love you Wayne, Kev #WayneMcGhie #MontegoBay #Jamaica #WayneMcGhieAndTheSoundsOfJoy #TheSoundsOfJoy #StudioOne  #JamaicaToToronto #JamaicaTorontoSeries #LightInTheAtticRecords #Sipreano #VoluntaryInNature PEACE 🇯🇲 🇨🇦

The Sheiks - Eternal Love 
Val Bent came to Toronto from Jamaica as a member of the Sheiks in 1964. He ended up staying in the city and becoming a key member of the city's Caribbean music community, with the Sheiks taking on a gig as the house band at Club Jamaica on Yonge Street. Their single "Eternal Love" came out in 1967 on Raymond Records, and it was featured on Jamaica to Toronto decades later. 
Bent went on to play with the Hitch-Hikers featuring the Mighty Pope and was in a short-lived band called Wild Oats. He performed in Canada up until the '80s, but eventually went back to Jamaica. Bent suffered a stroke later in his life and stopped playing music, but he came back to Canada to perform at the Jamaica to Toronto concert in 2006. 
The unique guitar stylings and musicianship is amazing. He was a major contributor to the music scene In Toronto and his musicianship is still felt by all those who appreciated him and his genius. RIP

What do all these records have in common? They are all by Canadians of course...digging in the Fat City archives in an attempt to showcase the incredible variety of music my country has produced. Tried to keep it to 15 albums in honour of Canada's 150th birthday on July 1 but there was just no way! Still many more I could have included, no disrespect to any omitted...some of these I have posted before and some I may in future...what a long, strange northern journey it's been, happy Canada Day! #canada150 #canadaday #vinyl #records #nowplaying #nowspinning #vinylcommunity #vinylcollection #instavinyl #vinyligclub #canadianmusic #vinyl_mag #huntvinyl #bryanadams #jamaicatotoronto #jonimitchell #crackofdawn #leonardcohen #neilyoung #brucecockburn

And what did I manage to find today at the Cobourg @zaprecords? 
Why the 10th Anniversary Limited Edition orange vinyl reissue of Wayne McGhie's self-titled holy grail on @lightintheatticrecords. Legendary Toronto reggae-influenced funk and soul with all the drums open for business. 
Huge shout out to @sonsoffuzz who posted about his OG copy recent and to someone else who had a conversation going on IG about it. (I can't remember who posted it but I know @salmongang and @chrana were in on the jokes). I didn't know the record until I saw those posts but hard filed that knowledge for quick reference. 
Didn't take long to come up on a copy of the reissue. Definitely meant to happen. Now I need to find the Jamaica to Toronto comp.

Ishan People - Roots (GRT, 1976)

First of only two albums released by this pioneering Jamaican-Canadian group based in the Toronto area is in a one drop roots style and sports versions of Bob Dylan's I Shall Be Released and Bob Marley's Talking Blues as well as the arresting Your Money Or Your Life.

Both LP's were produced by David Clayton-Thomas of Blood Sweat & Tears, with the second, self titled release appearing the following year and featuring vocals by then little known Johnny "Bumpy" Osbourne; tracks from that LP such as Inflation, Rainbow and Trenchtown sounding like trial runs for the Truths & Rights album he would record for Studio One upon Ishan People's demise and his return to Jamaica. Ishan People became a crucial but neglected footnote in the history of Jamaican music in Canada. #records #vinylrecords #vinyl #vinylcommunity #vinylcollection #instavinyl #reggae #roots #jamaicatotoronto
