Prince Fatty

September 11, 2012

Record reviews are obsolete, right? In the old days we read reviews because we had to buy new albums blind. Now we just preview the tracks on youtube and we like it or we don’t. So there’s no reason whatsoever to read some dude’s witty 750 word writeup.

Can someone please break it to Pitchfork?

Prince Fatty‘s new album was released yesterday, and it is the very very first full LP I’ve ever bought from the iTunes store. I actually pre-ordered it after listening to some of the tracks a few months back.

It’s got a couple great reggae and soul covers including Ali Baba (I posted the orig. and a different redo last year) and a Whispers cover, which was released earlier as a single and I also shared. He also covers Max Romeo‘s slackness tune Wet Dream and an ODB track.

Here’s a cut from the album, along with the Winston Francis original from around 1969:

MP3: Prince Fatty- Go Find Yourself a Fool (feat. Winston Francis)

MP3: Winston Francis & The Shades- Find Yourself A Fool

Here’s another Winston Francis track I posted back in May 2011. Boy I guess I like this guy. Glad he’s still going strong!
