The Cobbs - Joe Gibbs Mood / Hot Buttered Corn 7"SKU: HSRSS0007
The mysterious and hugely talented COBBS recorded only four instrumental tracks in 1969. These 4 tracks were produced by Joe Gibbs - in his recording studio in Kingston, Jamaica. They were initially published on the Amalgamated Records label in the UK in 1969 on 4 distinct 45ers shared with other artists from the label.
As a band, The Cobbs are virtually unknown today but its members were in fact the creme de la creme of Jamaican musicians at the time. All four were members of the Revolutionaries, the 1970s Channel One studio band. Check this line-up: Sly Dunbar: Drums, Rad Bryan: Guitar, Ranchie McLean: Bass and Ansel Collins: Keyboards
With such musicianship, it is really unfortunate that only 4 songs, all instrumentals and all cracking tracks, were ever recorded by The Cobbs. Their compositions were distinctly creative, driven by a big organ sound, heavy rhythms and an unstoppable energy.&nbsp; Unknown and underrated, The Cobbs were a formidable Reggae powerhouse for a short time at the end of the 60s. Many thanks to Ansel Collins for providing the information regarding The Cobbs line-up...
