    Great tune, but the laughter sound effects always distract me a bit on that version. I like this mix - I had the organ vamp at the beginning as my ringtone for a while.

    Agreed BC - the first time I heard (and taped this) was on the radio - no laughing - and yet the version I subsequently picked up on record had the laughing...

    The Upsetter having the last laugh - as per usual

    I've finished reading the in depth book on Dennis Brown by Penny Reel:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Deep-Down-D.../dp/0954195906

    It reminded me of just how many great tunes Dennis made over the years. Hard to pick one individual tune for the desert island but if I had to, it would probably be this one:

    Tribulation



    Also check the incredible dub version of said tune on the "sledgehammer dub" album:

    Tribulation Version

    I would guess - yes!

    In a parallel universe Sun Ra is playing reggae instead of jazz, with Prince Far I his toaster of choice...

    Job done.

    I first heard this one played by the Silver Camel Sound System (run by the Daddy Kool Record shop guys) at the 100 Club Thursday night reggae sessions in 1977. Fabian's "prophecy" (as featured on Dr. Smith's Xmas Swap CD) was another "floorshaker" tune that would get regular spins too.
