Rare Eek-A-Mouse single

Here is a digital transfer of “Once A Virgin”/”Modelling Queen.”  My copy was pressed to the Joe Gibbs Ultrasound label and released in 1981.  Killer, killer early Eek-A-Mouse wizardry with with solid production from the Mighty Two.  The version titled “Modelling Queen” is just incredible.  I love what they do with Hylton’s vocal on the version.  Truly rare and stupid hot version…

Marley flick in the works

from the Jamaica Observer

A film about the international rise of reggae legend Bob Marley and his Wailers band is reportedly in the works, according to the website, indiewire.com.

Titled Buffalo Soldiers (the name of one of Marley’s songs), it will be distributed by Mandalay Pictures, with writer Barry Morrow (Rain Man) and producer Cathy Schulman (Crash) reportedly assigned to the project.

According to indiewire.com, the film traces Marley and the Wailers’ emergence from the rugged Kingston community of Trench Town in the 1960s, to super-stardom a decade later.
