Yes, that Martin Bashir. Loves Raggae music. Loves it so much wrote a whole album about it.Wanna hear it? Okay goes like this: https://myspace.com/martinbashirmusic/music/album/bass-lion-16775688
You can listen to his whole album, Bass Lion, and buy songs for 99₵ each.
And it is rather good. Four Amazon reviewers rate it 5 stars. But they could be admirers. They could be crackpots whose political fealty overrides their musical sensibility and honesty. What do they say?
* Wicked and wild
Was thinking what does a journalist know about reggae? This is a serious, quality album. Rich various shades. No joke.
* Love it
Want the CD, love Martin on this album
* Great old skool reggae music
exceptionally good reggae album. For those who like old school style reggae (dub, rock-steady, British-style reggae) Seriously. Sounds like 70's Bashir has really good tenor for most of this, some by female and a toastmaster. Bass patterns are rock solid and very old school. Give it a whirl. Cost is cheap. Listen to solidly for a week. Fun album and uplifting.
* Unbelievably Good
Saw Diana interview and problems with Prince Charles. Think he's best political commentator on TV. Never mis his 3PM show on MkSNBC. Pleasantly shocked and surprised to see this man is top notch musician also. Reminiscent of years in London during late 70's. Get this album.
See? They were doing well until that last one veered off as I was expecting the whole time. That there's what you call a self-fulfilled probability.
YouTube Martin Bashir talks about his love for reggae music (56 seconds)
Lovely song titles. Here are a few:
1.) Inspiration (intro)
2.) Give Thanks
3) Jah Help I From Bout Ya
4) Love Of Your Life
5) Shower of Blessings
7) Evevry Likkle Boy <-- spells it that way
10) High Grade Tree
11) Music Over Evyting <-- spells it that way
Sweet titles. Nice titles. Titles that indicate a touching sensitivity about the human condition, whatever that means, songwriters know what that means, perhaps I don't so much but they do, so I would use their superior human condition knowledge to shame him. Every single time. For the rest of his life. No matter how harmless the occasion. I would slip in one or two of those titles into ordinary conversation. "evevry likkle boy" will stick right out and make him go "uh oh" followed "shower of blessings" slipped in conversationally will smack him on the head and he will feel it, singularly, more than anybody else would because they are his songs. His own sanctimony assures it. Work those titles into any interview with Bashir, his titles. For fun.
If in interviews you do not hear these titles fed back to him, slipped in surreptitiously, as if by accident, and repeated, hammered, then Republicans are simply not trying.
