In the midst of combing through our office to find long lost goodies to share with you at our annual Numero Pop Up store, we found something exceptionally exciting. Housed in an unassuming black sleeve with the gold stamped CES logo, this 12” is the very first Numero release on vinyl. Back in the summer of 2006, our fledgling label had only nine CDs under our belts, and we were unsure of the viability of releasing things on vinyl (oh how times have changed!). After fielding many fan requests, a run of 100 copies (with no test pressings) were made featuring two of the most dance-friendly cuts on Belize City Boil Up, plus a pair of re-edits by Earwig. Each copy was hand stamped, includes a printed insert and resides inside a dead-stock CES sleeve.
Eventually re-packaged in a “Numero Disco sleeve” and released as +001 in our disco 12″ series, Lord Rhaburn Combo / Jesus Acosta & The Professionals – Disco Connection / Guajida is officially out of print on that format as well.
Folks coming out to the Numero Pop Up shop can have their chance at one of the three recently unearthed copies of this true rarity for the collectors price of $50.

Last week we got introduced to Zak Piper who is a producer over at Kartemquin Films. After geeking about his love of Numero releases he mentioned that he purchased the sheet music on eBay a few years ago for Nadia Couttouse’s “Long Time Boy” featured on 006 Cult Cargo: Belize City Boil Up & he was kind enough to send over some scans for the archive. You can find out more about Nadia’s career and musical history in our digital dig section.

This episode finds Ben stickering our revamped Cult Cargo: Belize City, Boil Up LPs. As some of you may have noticed, the spine was out of wack and needed to be fixed. While we were at it we sharpened up the photos (and added a bunch more too), and fixed errors in the text. Numero completists will, of course, need to re-buy.
