about

Based on the Rhythm and Blues classic, this is a super rare uptempo Ska cover and one for all Ska fans and the DJ’s! Originally sung by Amos Milburn, in the 50’s this had been a sound system classic in Jamaica. There is nowhere else in the world but in Jamaica that could produce such a cover version and the utterly convincing Drummond’s solo works nicely as a spice of this tune. Originally released on a blank label although it’s a super rare one to find - a proud copy to own and must have for all Ska Man. On the flip is a great vocal Ska yet the singer’s detail is completely unknown.

*It is recommended to pair this title with the instrumental version by Don Drummond on this very same series (DSR-FW7-04).
