That's exactly what happened when I heard barbwire, which is a modern take on the You Don't Care riddim, popularised by Nora Dean's hit, Barbwire.
I haven't really got round to compiling the tracks themselves, but I did put together a playlist on youtube, check it out at the link below:
You Don't Care riddim
There are some repetitions, different versions of the same song, sometimes only the playing band's name is different. I also included a riddim mix, seems I wasn't the only one interested in its variations.
If you are an Augustus Pablo group member, AP's take on the riddim, The Sting, may be of special interest.
I'm planning on digging up the tracks as well in the foreseeable future, if I don't check back on this journal entry soon feel free to remind me!
Hi blueyz, thanks for your comment/help! I've got 6-7 so far, the ones I'm missing:
Dennis Alcapone: Mosquito One, El Paso (I won't consider the collection ready without these :)
Pat Kelly: You Don't Care
Devon Russell: Make Me Believe In You
Cornell Campbell: You Don't Care For Me.
There are several others songs with this riddim which were not included in the youtube channel, so the two things will overlap but will not be the same. It might also mean that I will have further problems gettings those other songs, so bear with me a little longer :)
I'd like to get to 15 before distributing the results here, but the more the merrier! Should you have any of the above mentioned tracks, could you please send them to me? You will earn an honorable mention here!
Without further ado, here is the link:
You Do Care
The folder contains a 17-track collection, a few bonus tracks and an AP album.
Note: This collection would not have been possible without the help of blueyz, thanks a lot!
