Sam Tweaks Cracking soul / reggae dance floor crossover track. Always fills the floor at Scooterist events Favorite track: Do The Jerk.


This record features a cool vocal Ska song from 1964 and a Jamaican Soul song by the Derrick Harriott & Paulette duo recorded in 1962. The amount of releases was not so big for Derrick Harriott during the Ska era, which could be said as a blank period of his career, but despite of the fact, this is simply an authentic and cool minor code dance anthem. The flip side features an excellent Soul duet that was an unusual set at the time. This hot dance number was played in the early days of sound systems.
