Jeb’s Jukebox Volume 1Jeb Loy Nichols has been dropping dimes and blowing minds on the Caught by the River website once a month since the year 2012. We’ve now undertaken to spread the love via a series of mixtapes. Volume 1 comprises the first sixteen tunes that Jeb selected, blended together by our old pal the Dubwood Allstars.

Jeb’s Jukebox Volume 2 – the second mix born of Jeb Loy Nichols‘ monthly column, blended by the trusty Dubwood Allstars. Featuring tracks by Jimmy Holliday, Alvin Robinson, Alton Ellis, Shirl Milette, and Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers.

We visited the house ahead of the day and decided that, weather permitting, we would set up the speakers on the terrace.
