Can’t get enough of the good Doctor? Neither can we! That’s exactly why we have imported some of his recent Germany import classics proudly sit next to “The Remedy” album we released late last year! We’ve got limited copies of two stone cold classics – “BINGO BONGO” with his Spanish group SKA-VAGANZA and “GWAAN” with German collective SHARP AXE BAND. Both these albums are varied with ska, roots reggae, dancehall, and calypso – if you dug “The Remedy” you’re definitely need to add these to your collection. And if you also love vintage DUB sounds we also have “March Forth” – his dub counterpart to “GWAAN”. All on heavyweight vinyl! Don’t delay, this shipment took nearly 90 days to arrive!
It’s like Christmas – the Dr Ring Ding imports just keep coming! Speaking of Christmas we brought in a handful of his holiday album “Once A Year” since we sold out of it earlier than expected in 2020. Also back in stock is the wonderful 4 track 10″ mini-LP of calypso delights, including his wonderful versions of “The Needle” and “Obeah Wedding”!
German ska & reggae virtuoso DR RING DING has returned with his seventeenth album, a wonderful collection of songs that range between reggae, old school dancehall, 2 Tone, traditional ska, cumbia and dub. Since 1987 he has performed with the top Jamaican influenced bands in Germany including EL BOSSO & DIE PING PONGS, SENIOR ALLSTARS, and THE BUSTERS. With the band SKA-VAGANZA he focused on traditional 60s Caribbean music, and that love continues with the songs on THE REMEDY – showing incredible diversity and talent as a singer, songwriter, entertainer and trombonist. Guests include Jamaican dancehall queen SISTA GRACY, the Grammy-nominated TIPPA IRIE, American jazz singer STEPHANIE K. and Swiss singer and Eurovision 2010 participant MICHAEL VON DER HEIDE. An absolutely enjoyable and well-rounded album! The remedy works – just call the Doctor! Sunny Yellow vinyl with a free drink coaster limited to 200 copies, “cloudy” white vinyl limited to 200 copies.
