From Scott Schaffer:
Stephen Marley - Someone to Love
There is no way this is going to be the last blurb. The podcast battle lives on and on and on. The track I have selected this round is by Stephen Marley. It is a bonus track from Mind Control that was only on the first print bought at best buy. What's up with that?
When I heard this track I thought it sounded vaguely familiar. As I continued to listen, it became more and more familiar and I thought it was a cover. Then, I checked the liner notes and this is what it said - "Someone to Love" contains elements of the composition "Send Me That Love" (Bob Marley, Rainford Perry) So, sure enough, this is a sort of "cover" more so than just a sample. I thought it was well done and an interesting song. As you know Stephen has put out some nice re-mastered Bob tunes and his production work is solid as well as creative. I imagine Stephen up late in the studio, spliffed out and rendering a song mostly for his own enjoyment and probably not for mass consumption. So, check out the track and then check out the original, off of a Bob and the Upsetter compilation. Sort of a dual submission if you will but I think you will enjoy it.
By the way. This is a song that I was was trying to explain to Howard, and he said "Man I'm going to come up with a way for us to share reggae with each other"- or something like that. The rest is podcast history. THANK YOU HOWARD. Enjoy.
