Recommended Posts

This is from a 1976 ITV documentary called Aquarius...it's the only footage I've seen of Roy Shirley, who was one of Jamaica's most soulful singers. I cut the clip short as he starts showboating a bit! Note Rico Rodrigues on trombone.

....Hold them right and left now, Shirley!

TONE :D
