The Jays: 'Fresh As Ever'

The Jays evolved from the 1960s group called the Royals. Today, the Jays is made up of Errol Wilson (founding member), Lloyd Forrest and Leo Hall. After moving from the Royals they took on the name the 'Tempests' and then in the mid 1970s, The Jays.
Working out of the red-hot Channel One studio of owner/producer Joseph Hoo-Kim, the Jays heralded the start of what became known as the Disco 45 era, one in which the extended music was accompanied by a Disc-jockey(dj) or extended playing rhythm( drum and bass style).
The group smashed the charts with hits such as Truly', (with the Deejay, Ranking Trevor), 'Molody Life' and 'Yaho', a remake of the 1960s song by another Jamaican group, The Viceroys.
The group's latest effort is an album entitled the 'Right Solution', out of the famous Studio One camp and using some of the the original Studio One rhythm tracks. Tracks such as 'The Right Feeling', 'Studio One Beat','Cleanse Your Mind' and 'What A Crisis' is a vivid reminder that the Jays remains a class act. The album is a must for collectors and lovers of great Jamaican music. The Jays are also available for booking through Vintage Boss Productions. Soon available on DVD from Vintage Boss Productions, The Jays: 'Fresh As Ever'.

I got great news. We've been recording and producing new tracks with the Jays since last year.
We've just finished their new album!

Production on all tracks by Grant Phabao, who plays all instruments excepted for keyboards played by Soul Sugar (from Seven Dub).
Its pure 70s roots reggae, first people who have heard the tracks have made comparisons with Exodus...

It will be their greatest recording ever.

We've also done remixes, dressing the songs non-reggae style, there's a jazz version of a new Jays song which is incredible!

To be released on T.I.M.E.C. (France) in 2009.
Expect 45s and 12s too.
And free mp3s on

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
