Wayne McGhie & the Sounds of Joy - Wayne McGhie & the Sounds of JoyLong out-of-print, this vintage piece of Canadian soul has been lovingly resurrected by Seattle reissue label Light in the Attic. McGhie was part of Toronto’s Jamaican expatriate community that included such legendary figures as Leroy Sibbles and Jackie Mittoo. Recorded in Toronto in 1970, the album features cool covers like “Take a Letter Maria” and such stirring originals as McGhie’s instrumental “Dirty Funk.” Now remastered, it represents a fascinating glimpse into the early—and surprisingly soulful—CanCon era.
