Top Rankin’ Hi-Fi – Counting Numbers Version #1

After my iPod was on random and played a few songs about numbers consecutively, I decided to keep the theme going and put this set together. Once the cuts in the crates to choose from were sorted, I ended up with way too many for a single set, so, in this first version, the focus is on Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady and Dub vibes. The rule was that the title of the song had to include a number, thus a few instrumental selections are present here and there. Enjoy the journey from one to nineteen and be on the lookout for a second set, culled from a variety of genres, in the future.
