Remarks A much loved and well known melody in reggae direct from Africa. Well it looks like this group spent a good portion of time working with Prince Buster, but this as nothing to do with the man from Beat Street. It's yet another great tune with the master of the scrubbing guitar, Ranny Bop. No sign of any scrubbing here, that was still to come – but it's another great production from him. Recutting these old pop standards – needs a lot of imagination to make them work. More than anything else – it's the energy in this tune that makes it work. A great tune from a great era.
