Clint Eastwood – Sex Education [1980]

Clint Eastwood - Sex Education

Clint Eastwood - Sex Education

We got bored today and fired up Photoshop in tribute to this great album cover. I wonder what the real Clint Eastwood thinks when he Googles himself and comes across stuff like this on the internet?

Clint Eastwood

This is the 1980 album by the reggae DJ Clint Eastwood on Greensleeves Records (the one at the top, not our photoshop tribute). This album cover looks slightly sinister in this day and age; Mr. Eastwood appears to be teaching sex education in school with a focus on the number 69. We can only assume that he is teaching an adult evening class – and definitely not schoolchildren, yes, that would work. The photography for this album cover is credited to Fabio Gallo .

The album is packed full of Roots Radics rhythm tracks and Clint Eastwood DJs over many of their early 80s dancehall hits from artists like Barrington Levy. Overall a solid 1980s DJ album.

Track List:

  • On The Continent
  • Side Kick
  • Sweet Sweet Jamaica
  • Whole Heap A Gal In A De Dance
  • Sex Education (Me Go Deh Already)
  • Blues Night
  • Watch Yourself Mr. Newspaperman

Clint Eastwood - Live & Love

This was released in 1978 on Live & Love Records (vinyl) and Jackpot (CD).

Clint Eastwood’s older brother was the famous reggae DJ called Trinity, and some of his stylistic influence can be heard in Eastwood’s DJ’ing style (as well as a heavy Dillinger influence). Many reggae DJs used to take their names from US movie stars, especially Westerns, and Clint Eastwood bagged one of the most famous names of all time.

Eastwood went on to find a degree of commercial success in the 1980’s when he teamed up with General Saint for a couple of DJ albums on the Greensleeves record label, but he is in a roots reggae form on this album, DJing over some heavy 1970’s roots rhythms.

The album cover shows that the 1980s are getting closer, with a terrible font and design for the album title that totally fails to match the music contained on the album (the design looks more suited to a 5-Star album cover). But top marks must go to Clint Eastwood for managing to squeeze himself into what looks like the smallest recording booth in the world.

The album was recorded and produced by Bunny Lee, and features some great tracks when Jamaican toasting was arguably at its most dominant.

Track List:

  • Step It A Little Harder
  • Dread A What The Gal Want
  • Whip Them Jah Jah
  • Step It In A Zion
  • Piece Of The Action
  • On Your Mark
  • Fist To Fist
  • Ganga Smoker
  • Natty Dread Is A Working Man
  • Send Another Vegie
  • Caroline
