    Unless the search function is utterly buggered, it seems there has NEVER a thread with Channel One in the subject line...
    That's SOO wrong....
    Room here for the Jo Jo Hoo Kim , Linval Thompson and , yes even Scientist
    Got Linval and JOJO making it cheesetastic SAW of their JA comtemps
    BUT before they got "pop", ace , beyond ace
    - (reluctant in many ways to put up any Earth Stone on here - no one has ever mentioned, they did the vocals for loads of C1 dubplates...) blinding pair


    Yep these are remakes of their Studio 1 versions ... but chiller more lambs bread takes I feel

    Another remake - got the Joe Frazier label version but scratched awae tae buggry like....

    For me, most of Reggae's finest tunes have come out of Studio One or Channel One.

    I remember John Peel playing a Channel One Dub tune once and saying he felt sorry for people listening on little transistors as all they would hear were a series of beeps and echoes :D

    I looked to see who it was by it said The Mohawks. Who's this Alan H geezer??

    Sorry Hawkshaw....he's a british composer....did loads of bbc sound studio stuff as well as being involved in loads of brit music from the 50s onwards....has been sampled millions of times...especially 'The Champ' by the Mohawks...

    He did the Grange Hill theme tune....and did a wicked fucking solo for Bowie when he performed In The Heat of The Morning at the beeb, thus elevating that tune from something good to something quite fantastic....

    he's one of those career musicians for whom it is hard to tell all the things they have touched....

    ....oh...he did the countdown tune too

    You know that quote "you learn something every day"...well its true. Cheers for that, he sounds like a proper unsung hero from the music world. I'll have a read up on him when I get five.
    I've just had a listen to The Champ, great tune, sounds like something that you might be playing down The Hand in Hand??
