Band: Reggae Cowboys, Album: Let's Ride, Song: Mr.Hubble

You can probably guess what this band is going to sound like from their name but I assure you it will exceed your expectations.  This isn't another Dreadlock Holiday or Get In To Reggae Cowboy song.  While the band was formed in Toronto in the early nineties, they are actually from the Island of Dominica in the British West Indies.  The two original members that founded the group were Stone Ranger and Click Masta Sync.  This particular release is almost a duplicate of another one of the band's releases entitled, Stone Ranger.  The song Mr.Hubble is available on both releases.  Let's Ride is an enhanced cd with a video for one of their tracks included.  It also includes a cover of the Eric Clapton song, Lay Down Sally, that isn't on Stone Ranger.  The album was released in 2002.  The song Mr.Hubble has a wicked groove although the lyrics are ridiculous.  "Mr.Hubble, king of the bubble.  Like a solidier pon de double."  Stone Ranger is available for download on Itunes.  At the time of this blog there were copies of either release available on Amazon, CD Baby and Ebay ranging from $2-$40.  There doesn't appear to be any video footage of the song Mr.Hubble available but You Tube does have some other videos of the band performing live at various Roots festivals in Canada.  I'm not sure if the band is still touring.  Their website shows tour dates up until 2009 only.  You can read more about the band at  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
