More Soulful Reggae & Rocksteady (Podcast - Soul Covers)

Recommended Posts

Another in the occasional series of Jamaican covers of well known Soul and R & B tunes.  Lots on here I’ve not used before.  I have to say though, while doing this, to my great surprise the track I enjoyed the most was one I bought as 13 year old schoolboy, and at the time it was on a par with Wet Dream as being the most notorious record to own — Prince Buster’s adaption of Rainy Night In Georgia, the legendary Big Five.  Never quite understand why it was called Big Five though…anyway I hadn’t listened to it for years and it bought back a lot of memories, including that of my brother breaking my copy in half because I kicked him.  Those were the days…
