12.05.11 - Barry Llewellyn & Fattis Burrell Tribute


We were very saddened to learn that two big artists in Jamaican music had passed away. The first was Barry Llewellyn, one of the founding members of the legendary The Heptones who passed away from pneumonia at 63 on November 23rd in Saint Andrew, Jamaica. The second was the celebrated, prolific producer Phillip "Fattis" Burrel of the Kingston, JA based Xterminator Records, who passed away from medical complications after a stroke at the young age of 57 years.

Queen Majesty and Scratch Famous take turns playing their favorite Heptones and Xterminator tunes in loving memory to these two musical greats, may they rest in peace. Check the archive to listen to the show.
