Send Us Another Moses: Playlist for Apr. 6, 2012

Tonight's show honours Passover & Good Friday, while incorporating another edition of Dub News, distilled from the April issue of  Wire magazine, especially Steve Barker's dub column therein.
Of Return of Django, Barker writes: "Initially a Trojan cash-in singles collection in 1969, perversely this now stands as one of the great Upsetter albums." While I understand Barker's attitude toward the ubiquitous Trojan, I have to say that Trojan's unrelenting 50 year quest to cash in on Jamaican music has resulted in hundreds of great albums, for which reggae fans everywhere are grateful.
