Welcome to eCaroh Caribbean Emporium!
The re-release of MARC UP as a CD is as important as the release of the original LP in 1978. MARC UP captures the spirit of spoken word performances that flourished in the Caribbean in the wake of Carifesta I. The CD is also an important document of a milestone in Caribbean spoken word recordings.
MARC UP features ALL-AH-WE--Marc Matthews, Ken Corsbie, Henry Muttoo and Johnny Agard using poetry, songs, and prose to weave a fantastic word tapestry of Caribbean aspirations, frustrations and humor. They are accompanied in this venture by a roster of equally creative Caribbean musical talent including Ras "Camo" Williams, Eddie Hooper, Chuck Girard, Keith Waithe, and Lancelot Lane.
Ken Corsbie must be congratulated for making this valuable artifact available again. With the pops and hisses, this CD is a collector's delight. It is a bit of Caribbean history to be treasured.
