Financial Crisis
October 10, 2008 08:02 AM PDT

Financial crisis

I can’t believe this has not been done already, but here goes; here we have an hour long a musical commentary on the current credit crunch/financial crisis/worst economic thing to happen in the last 70 years. At the end of this podcast are a couple of suggestions for a solution to the economic meltdown. We could, as the Silvertones suggest and have a little faith and put our trust in Jah, or we could follow the suggestions made by Derrick Morgan swiftly followed by the same suggestion made by U Brown.

If you do have any spare dollars, cents, euros or pence wearing holes in your pockets feel free to use the ‘please donate’ button provided on this page by PayPal ;-D

Here’s the track list............

1 The miracles – money
2 Jimmy Witherspoon - money's gettin' cheaper
3 Willie Jones – where’s my money
4 Al & The Vibrators - money or love
5 Barrett Strong – money
6 Jumbo Sterling - slave driver
7 Marcia Griffiths – working
