04.30.12 Carlton "Tetrack" Hines LIVE in the studio


Tetrack was originally Carlton Hines, Dave Harvey and Paul Mangaroo. They formed in the early 1970s, catching the ear of producer and instrumentalist Augustus Pablo, for whom they cut the strong singles I'm Not Satisfied (1975) and Let's Get Started (1977). The latter became the title-piece of their first album for Pablo in 1980, followed by a second for Gussie Clarke before the outfit called it a day towards the end of the digital decade.
We were so glad to have Carlton Hines on the show to hear and talk about his latest album Unfinished Business. The revived line up initially featured Hines, Harvey and new recruit Norris Reid of the Viceroys - but Harvey left prior to the start of the project. The regrouping came to the attention of another master producer (and colleague of Pablo's) Clive Chin who helped arrange download distribution from VP.
It's a wicked album, definitely grab it online and big up Michael from VP for bringing Carlton to the show! He is a man with lots of stories of the history of the music, I wish we had more time to talk to him but hopefully he will be back on the show again. Check the archive for the interview and the preview.
