RACEY B's THOUGHTS ON:

THE JAMS BOARD

"Great forum in which to come and spin a yarn. I think having the island as a background sets the mood, very chill, very comfortable place to be and most of all lots of FUN without having to leave home!"

UB40

"The guys have been around for so long, I think that they are now musical mastercraftsmen -- it only gets better. I also admire their side projects -- helping other reggae artistes and their generosity for their charity work and the way they make themselves accessible to fans...terrific! Always look forward to their next new release..."

BEING A UB40 FAN

"Heard 'Food for Thought' on the airwaves first and then shortly after my brother won 10 vinyls in a radio comp, one of the LP's was Signing Off so I yoinked it from his collection and have been a fan ever since. When I first started work my pay would go on my UB40 collection before all else!! (food, clothes, rent etc)"

MUSIC

"The list is so long but I like to play music to reflect one of my many moods! lol. Apart from Reggae music my regular playlist always includes Stevie Ray Vaughn, Ry Cooder, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Living Color(defunkt), Usher, Keb Mo', Billie Holiday, Nina Simone. Ella Fitzgerald, Motown and a myriad of others.."

TOP 3 SONGS

"In no particular order: 'SOUL REBEL' (love Norman's husky rendition)"

"'LOVE IS ALRIGHT' (a younger 'ali' voice chill piece with a message)"

"'VERSION GIRL' (Ali and Astro - niccceee)"

THE JAMS POSSE

"Everyone is so friendly, sis is da bomb! Especially made me feel welcome on the Island. am slowly getting to know the other islanders as they pop-up, friendly crew -- cookie, Neptune Rose, jiffy, oLdbOi, sandi, lil 'ness, Helena, coty and sanoi, all people who I've talked to on different posts and it's only been a couple of months!!"

THE #UBJams CHAT

"Have popped my head in a couple of times, but nobody home, I think the time difference has a lot to do with it, but I'll keep trying."

A PERSONAL QUOTE from RACEY B

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it"- I'm not big on having things just for the sake of it, just keep it simple.....
