about

This album of collaborations with a huge cast of my talented friends was assembled from recordings made over many years in many different and far-flung studios, most of it done in chunks with no set agenda. I later assembled and finished it at my home base, Version City. Working on it brought back many wonderful memories of my travels over the years and of the very interesting, kind-hearted, generous and warm characters with whom I have had the privilege of creating these tracks. Many of these fine folks have taken me into their homes, and many of them have spent considerable time here at Version City as well. They are all certainly my friends for life, and we have all been united by our love of music, especially the classic sounds of Jamaica. May our love of good people, good music and words of positivity, upliftment and encouragement reach across to you through these sounds; may you enjoy listening to these tunes as much as we enjoyed creating them especially for you.

Track Name: You Said You Love Me
You said you love me but I just don’t know
If you really love me then why don’t it show

You Said You Love Me

You said you love me but I just don’t know
Because if you love me you wouldn’t go
You said you love me but I just don’t know
If you really love me please let it show

You Said You Love Me
Track Name: King Django with Obi Fernandez and the Void Union - Aiming
Woke up on the floor – hurting
Keys in the door – careless
I was drinking alone - and flirting
How’d I make it back home – mysterious

In the mirror melancholy me
Awash in whiskey and my misery
Oh oh what a dreadful sight
Oh oh what’d I do last night

Aiming to drown all my sorrows

Waking up again – I’m crying
I cannot defend – my bearing
Burying my head - denying
My face is turning red – I’m swearing

In the mirror melancholy me
Awash in whiskey and my misery
Oh oh what a dreadful sight
Oh oh what’d I do last night

Aiming to drown all my sorrows
I’m drowning unknown, unloved, alone in despair

In the mirror melancholy me
Awash in whiskey and my misery
Oh oh what a dreadful sight
Oh oh what’d I do last night
Oh oh what a dreadful sight
Oh oh what’d I do last night
Track Name: King Django with The Forthrights - Anywhere I Roam
Now you've flipped the disc to trip like this
So take one sip of my lyrics assist
And gape in the grip of my musical fist
As you shake with the shock of my Earthquake kiss

Anywhere I roam, that’s where I make my home
Anywhere I roam, that’s where I make my home

Now things are not always as they seem
So whose is the crop and which is the cream
And who keeps dancing as they dream
To one side A and one side B

I King Django never follow as I was born to lead
So hang out and hollar until the morning with me
Got to do the right to be on the winning team
With attention focused like a tight laser beam and

Anywhere I roam, that’s where I make my home
Anywhere I roam, that’s where I make my home

My father’s blessing flows like an eternal spring
So I shall not want for he gives everything
From my gold Django ring to my T-mobile wing
So I praise his name with my ukulele string and I sing to the one true king
And pay no mind to what other people says
For I King Django never watch no face

For the race is not to the swift if you catch my drift
Now this music come to give you a lift
Don’t need no bourbon, neither no spliff
When you climb aboard my musical skiff
And catch a whiff of my keyboard riff
As I would like to mention in a Version City fashion

Anywhere I roam….

For home is where the heart is and heart is where the art is
So don’t be no martyr, make a new start and depart for greener pastures
Move a little faster and let the music be your master

For we are just passing through so don’t you feel blue and don’t bother screw
‘Cause anything you do will come back to you
Don’t matter who and I know this is true
So mind where you lay up your riches
For home is where you can scratch where it itches…
Track Name: King Django with The Scrucialists - Do You Really Love Me?
Do you? Do you really love me?
Do you? Do you really miss me?
Do you? Do you really love me?
Do you? Do you really want me?

Rolling down the road for days and lonely nights
I call you on the phone and something don’t seem right
As I’m trying to picture your face in my mind
I’m getting the feeling that you aren’t mine

Holding back the tears as we say goodbye,
I’ve got to find a private place to break down and cry

(CHORUS)

And have you got the time to talk to me today?
And where were you last night when I called you up to say,
“There’s people all around but I’m feeling so alone
I’m counting the hours ‘til I can come home”
I haven’t slept for days, my tears have run dry
My pain is written on my face, no more can I hide

Do you? Do you really love me?
Do you? Do you really miss me?
Do you? Do you really need me?
Do you? Do you really love me?

Holding back the tears as we say goodbye,
I’ve got to find a private place, a quiet place to break down and cry
Track Name: King Django with PASO - Where Can I Go?
Are these the same streets you used to walk?
And is the strange speech we used to talk?
Where is the house that we used to live in?
How did you deal with the life you were given?
And where can I go for the answers?
Where is the family we counted in dozens?
Your sisters and brothers, my uncles, aunts and cousins?

Where is the house that we used to live in?
How did you deal with the life you were given?
And where can I go for the answers?

A dull ache fills the blank spaces
Tears come in place of the faces
Vague memories of a distant past
Your whole world swept away so fast

Where is the house that we used to live in?
How did you deal with the life you were given?
And where can I go for the answers?

I said I feel so sad and I feel so blue,
I just can’t find my way back to you
I know I’ll never find you no matter how I try
Though I look for the words I can only seem to cry
When I think of your smile and the gleam in your eye
And I can’t imagine all the pain you kept inside
And still you struggled and still you strived to survive
To give me love and give me life

Where is the house that we used to live in?
How did you deal with the life you were given?
And where can I go for the answers?
