Manray is a record collector, sound operator, owner and builder of the mighty Vital Sounds Hi Fi sound system.

In his own words, “I’ve always had a problem making top tens lists – there are so many great tunes which can change from day to day depending on my mood! To help narrow it down I’ve stuck with only selecting 7’s. The following are of some of my favorites which are generally in my box and come highly recommended.

And in the words of Keb Darge “I won’t harp on about records details and bore some of you. Those who want to know more will find a wealth of information on the net these days”.

Come to the next Vital Sounds session at Bar Bodega, Friday 19th March – Radio Active 89fm presents A Reggae Explosion, featuring the mighty Vital Sounds Hi Fi!
