MUSIC FROM THE EAST ....... Glen Brown

Glen Brown is one of reggae's most inspirational figures, a true icon of the 70's, starting off as a singer in the late 60's (singing harmony for Derrick Harriott and recording duets with Dave Barker) before becoming one of Jamaica's leading melodica players and a real 'hands-on' record producer. 

His highly collectable Pantomine label was legendary and when Glen came to the UK in the late 80's it seemed only right that the Fashion production team – all huge fans of the man's work  – should get together with the original ‘God Son’ and make some music!

The result was the ‘Music From the East’ album, ten tracks of melodica madness with Glen blowing free over some classic Fashion rhythms. 

Mystical, meditative and melodic, it’s a collection that shows Glen’s individual approach to making instrumental reggae in his own inimitable style….

Downloads may be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and Reggae Records Store.

A belated post to let you know about RAW GROOVE …..  with Janet Lee Davis, Barry Boom, Winsome, Nerious Joseph, C J Lewis, Phillip Leo and Zuruchi …..

Greetings music lovers, here's the next instalment from the Fashion back catalogue .... 


Love’s Gotta Take Its Time

Another journey into the Fashion vaults, and we return with Nerious’ classic debut album from 1987, ten tracks – plus a special bonus - of classic conscious Lover’s Rock from one of the UK’s best loved singers.

Nerious has had a career that has spanned thirty years, and he is still going strong – this album announced the arrival of a major new UK reggae talent and sounds as good today as it did back then. 

The songs still sound fresh as do the rhythms which were played by the cream of the UK’s session musicians, including Angus ‘Drummie’ Gaye from Aswad, Errol and Ewan Robinson from One Blood and top guitarist Ciyo Brown as well as the mighty Massive Horns.

Downloads may be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and Reggae Records Store.

Hope everyone had a great Easter, there's another classic Fashion album available for download!


The latest release from the Fashion Records vault is a classic collection of tunes from top reggae artists such as Frankie Paul, Leroy Gibbon, Mikey General, Horace Andy, Joseph Cotton and two of Jamaica’s true legends, the sadly missed Delroy Wilson and the late, great Junior Delgado.

All ten tracks were recorded, voiced and mixed at Fashion’s A-Class studio while the artists were visiting in the UK in the late 80’s, and this vintage collection was only ever issued on vinyl, making this the first digital release for this album.

Downloads may be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and Reggae Records Store.
