An occassional series of tunes either written or produced by the greatest midget in music.



Gorgeous ska-inspired cover of Millie Jackson's original 60s soul hit.

The Inspirations - Tighten Up



Sadly, I couldn't find a video that just has the single version of the song. But this vid is good enough, even if the DJ starts getting all dubby in the second half. It's a real gem of a tune. The Inspirations were a vocal duo consisting of reggae legend Jimmy TCOTU and Billy Dyce.

BACK ON TRACK

This one is pretty well known, but that doesn't make it any less fantastic:



Upsetters - Return of Django.
This was a top 5 hit in 1969, a double A side with this mighty tune:

Anyone seen Kevin MacDonald's documentary on Bob Marley yet? It's tremendous.

One of the songs featured is this 1970 Wailers single, produced by - you guessed it - the short man with the bright red dreads. Listen to those backing vocals :-*

Very different from the more pop-orientated stuff Perry produced in the late 60s/early 70s, these two tremendous songs by Errol Walker are good examples of the more socially conscious, dub-heavy, songs that became popular in the mid-to-late 70s.

They also show Perry at his studio-trickery peak. Listen to the echo-drenched organ on the first track - and the "MOOOOOOOOOOOOO" on the second :D
