Blood & Fire - RIP?

    fairly strong suggestions - first encounted on Eden's Uncarved site -that Blood & Fire Records have gone out of business.

    If true - and the website is gone - it's a fucking tragedy. Alongside the thankfully still extant Pressure Sounds, they made being a fan of roots reggae so much easier.

    Respect is due, if it's true. Or even if it's not.

    That is bad news, did some good cheap samplers and fat vinyls.

    I heard from a reggae producer & label owner that B&F have gone bust and that he got it straight from the horse's mouth.

    There hasn't been an announcement, rumour has it this might be because the back catalogue might be going up for sale.

    They'll be sadly missed, when those first reissues came out with the care previously olny afforded jazz reissues, they were like a breath od fresh air. Hope Pressure Sounds don't follow them, they're still putting out fantastic releases.

    Good innit, some of those dubs sound different to the original 45's too. I'm sure the version to "I Know Myself" is, will have to dig it out tonight and check.

    Yeah the message on the homepage about maintenance has been up for a few weeks now. Forums are there but old and paused. Time will tell.
