TECHNIQUES RECORDS-WINSTON RILEY Tribute

by Rich Lowe
1/26/2012
Winston Riley very recently passed away. He is one of the best in Jamaican musical history: A producer, singer, record shop and record label owner. Riley's Techniques record label produced rich, quality sound for decades. Over the years, we have collected Techniques music and this podcast features only 7" singles straight from Kingston, Jamaica on the Techniques record label. We feature more unusual recordings this go-round, so take time to enjoy these tracks as there are some great releases from a Jamaican hit-maker that must be remembered. Unfortunately Mr. Riley died in a similar fashion to another great producer, King Tubby. Mr. Riley was shot in the head while at home last November. After being in a coma since the shooting, he died last week.
