We reach for the vinyl heavens again and catch a celestial delight – an exact repress of Boris Gardiner’s legendary “Every Nigger Is A Star”, the long-lost soundtrack to a near mythical Jamaican film!

Long a grail-status LP for reggae and funk aficionados alike, Gardiner’s OST for Calvin Lockhart’s mysterious movie has eluded any official or unofficial re-release since 1974. Presented in its original format and with its original cover art, “Every Nigger Is A Star” is a dose of the finest conscious Jamaican music, generously laced with blaxploitation-style heavy funk.

The Boris Gardiner Happening present a deep, cross-genre constellation of sounds that spans sweet reggae to soul balladry, and stretches from the magical carib-funk-jazz of “Negril”, through the gold standard funk classic “Ghetto Funk”, to the deep acoustic cut of the title track. An essential release for fans of funk, blaxploitation OSTs and reggae, the CD release also comes equipped with detailed historical notes which finally clear up the mystery of the original film.

Another ‘deadly sting’ from Jazzman Records – because we dig deeper!
