Lord Kitchener

Lord Kitchener - Dr. Kitch aka The Needle (1963)

Dr KitchLord Kitchener – “I cannot stand the sight of your needle” – from one of Ska and Calypso’s legends. First played by Roger Eagle at ‘The Wheel’ in 64′ and covered by Georgie Fame.

Of course it was this man who kicked of the popularity of Jamaican music in Britain – with his hit CALYPSO – THE ROAD (yet to walk) :

The Road a song about the 1963 Carnival in Kingston was played by Roger Eagle at the original Twisted Wheel (the ‘B’ side of “Neighbour”) and got a few plays years later at the Blue Note club in Manchester – often requested by my friend Lincoln who DJ’d at the Blue Note All-Nighters.
