"45 45's until I'm 45" (#24/45)

Hello dear friends,

for a change something from a different part of the world, but nonetheless well worth downloading and listening to at stupendous volume.

The artist behind today's choice isn't easy to describe, or better: what he did and achieved for his country in his lifetime is hard to believe. Therefore I will just copy/paste a little something from "Caribarena Antigua - The Best Caribbean News Portal", dated May 5th 2012, which, I think, by and large says it all:

Antigua St John's - As part of the ongoing 50th Anniversary Celebrations for Sir McLean “King Short Shirt” Emanuel, the 50th Anniversary Committee on Saturday, June 16, 2012, under the theme, “WE ARE THE ONES…” will host a “Black-tie” gala at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa.
Sir McLean’s peers will gather to pay tribute to him, for his tremendous contribution to Antigua and Barbuda’s development, particularly in the Tourism and Entertainment industries.

On said night, four individuals will receive the Sir McLean “King Short Shirt” Emanuel’s “Lifetime Achievement Award,” and three others will receive the “Peoples’ Award.”

Here's your number twenty-four, friends. Please enjoy:

Weed Beat - WB 031 (1976)

A mighty record, friends. Again: do yourself a favour and listen to this!

And leave comments if it meets with your approval, will you?
