Okay I've posted this before on this forum and it's pretty well known, but going to again as it will be a definite contender for my Desert Island Discs when I'm invited. Really hard to imagine a better popular music record.

not Studio One but Winro which was apparently one of Coxonne Dodd's labels in 1980. Heard this on Rodigan tonight and hadn't heard it for yonks.

Yes that counts - and it's based on the rhythm from the Studio One 60s instrumental by Jackie Mittoo & Ernest Ranglin - Jericho Skank.
