    No mention of Barrington Levy in the article...

    Released the album "Shaolin Temple" in 1979.

    The article was by no means meant to be a comprehensive history of the connection of reggae and kung fu. It was just intro to set up the interview with Ziggy.

    As a side note: in my 1999 September cover story, Hip Hop Fist: Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and his Sifu, Shaolin Monk Shi Yan Ming, I included a sidebar 'Kung Fu on Disc'. The singles were mostly reggae, including two songs titled Shaolin Temple, one by Jah Grundy and the other by Trinity. This was, of course, old school research, prior to wikipedia. I can't find either online in a very cursory search, but here's more grist for the mill.

    Prince Jammy - Shaolin Temple

    jah grundy - shaolin disciples


    Here's Beenie working the Shaolin Temple riddem:

    Catch Ziggy on Leno last night?

    Here's the link to the full episode (only available until 05/12/12). Follow the link to the vid and skip to the last line on the time counter. He did Is This Love.

    Ziggy and I talked a little more after I turned my recorder off. He 'mean what he seh' when he talks about fitness. Ziggy is in good shape... "only the fittest of the fittest shall survive". He asked me about wing chun because he was interested in studying it, mostly out of his admiration of Bruce Lee. He also said he used to read our magazine every once in a while, but hadn't picked up a copy in some time. I wished I had brought one for him.

    lmao- true story. back when the second series of soul rebellions rocked negril, we had to come out strong, like nuclear, in the face of a lot of people who wanted us to fail, and because of all the other stage shows going down. cutthroat things going on you see it.

    week one was TOK.

    week two, we did Beenie Man. Problem was, his manager forgot to put us on the calendar. Deposits were made, etc., contract, everything. And none would be the wiser except he rolled into Negril early for another huge stage show he was on and just happened to call us up like, yow mi bredren mi dehyah negril wha gwaaaaaaan!!!!!

    So we were like, wtf, so early you reach? Anyway it came out that he had no idea what we were talking about because he had gotten last minute booked for a huge stage show down the road. That show was on the weekend, ours was the very next tuesday. Panic. We were fit to be tied. Some extra negotiations and we set it all right though.

    Now this was the days before there was any real serious NY style flyering- I can honestly say my crew were the first to bring that into the scene there. The flyers went out like you wouldn't believe, but the real heavy gun on the street were the giant 8x12' full color banners we put up. People were stealing them and putting them up over their own spots, then some next man would come and thief that and put it up where HE wanted it lmao.

    Anyway, the Beenie show was packed, and he gave an epic performance. I will dig up pics.

    Now though, here comes the sweet blow, because unknown to anybody I booked Bounty Killer for the very next week.

    And trust me, when THOSE posters and flyers hit, literally at sunrise the morning after the Beenie show, the hype was completely ridiculous. Fistfights were practically breaking out over who was going to draw the biggest crowd.

    And as it turned out, the gate for Bounty was CORKED properly.

    Now the truly hilarious thing is that at the Bounty show was a cop, known by a martial arts name, and true to form he nearly split his pants crescent kicking a perpetrator across his face at the gate who had dared to pickpocket the crowd at the Bounty show, whose compatriot broke free of the other officer's grasp, and who was actually man dressed as a woman, who left the cop standing there disguise in hand including a wig...

    When the man's foot hit the perp's face, he could not believe a foot struck him so, the look on his face was priceless, and at the sight the other perp tore off, burst through the gate and was GONE lol.

    Jus checked it out last night. It was great! Most of the footage and stories I have seen & heard before, but the clarity and color of the footage was much better than I had seen. Still, was great. Any of unu read the biography "Catch a Fire"?. I still love that because it goes into a lot more depth & detail bout Bob's life. I recommend reading it, even tho I think there was some controversy wit it. Don't fully remember.
    So, Gene, my standing is still good and intact!

    Bt & SR remain Shaolin Rasta members in good standing

    We'll give Richard a break as he's surely engaged with Yanming's big opening. Blessings there, btw. Wish I could be there with you all for that. Coincidentally, I was just watching 24, and Michelle Forbes was on, and I remember hanging out with her while staying with Yanming. Good times.

    Anyway, Richard, take your time getting to see MARLEY. I'm sure you will see it eventually. Until then, we'll give you a by.

    I hear what you're saying about the footage, SR. It's good to see that on the big screen again. Have you ever seen Roger Steffens do his Marley vid presentation? He's got some amazing footage that I've not seen anywhere else ever. And he's a true VJ - if you get into it and applaud wildly, he'll kick down the gems. And of course, I've read Catch a Fire (but then, I've read Garvey extensively as well as the Kebra Nagast).
