31 Oct Heartaches & Pain

In a time when dance hall rules the airwaves, it is refreshing to see a crucial and conscious reggae
track come out in Brooklyn. This riddim is sure to please all lovers of the reggae sound. Featuring great new versions from Freddy McGreggor, Luciano, George Nooks, JD Smooth, David Ondrick, Frankie Paul, Lucky D, Tristan Palmer, and many other great artists, there is something for everyone on this track. Check out the samples for yourself and you will see that this crucial release from Total Satisfaction records will be a welcome addition to any serious reggae fan’s collection.

When prodcer Leone Smillie called David Ondrick for horn work and the instrumental version on the closing track, he told David that the hook he wanted was based on an old melody by the great Skatalites horns-man Rolando Alfanso. Leon could not have made a better choice for the track, because David cites Rolando as one of his main influences on his reggae horn sound. “Rolando always gave me great encouragement when i visited him at the Apache Bakery in Brooklyn,” remembers David, “and he was the one who took to meet his friend Coxsone Dodd at Studio One on Fulton Street.”
