Yer Rock & Roll 16







Far too busy with all sorts of stuff to do any serious blogging at the moment so have a little reggae...

First clip is Toots Hibbert in his Toots and the Maytals manifestation with 54-46 Was My Number from way back. Don't ask me what the title means. Prison number? Some wag commenting on YouTube comment 'bump up the volume if you not rocking your dead'. Happily, empirical researches reveal that I am still alive ;)

Second clip is Buju Banton - the connection is that he recorded a fine version of 54-46 in duet with Tots Hibbert but annoyingly it's not on YouTube so have his Destiny instead. There ya go...

Our neighbors just got a puppy and named him Buju after Mr. Banton.

Bunch a weed smoking hippies. :)

It was his number when he was in for possession of pot. Shane Meadows used it for the opening of "This is England", too.

Earl - know the sort. They could get funny looks calling the dog in the park.

'HERE BUUUUUUUUUU-JUUUUUUUUUUU!!!'

Hank - didn't know that but I was on the right track. Sometimes you amaze me - in a good way.

Hank knows ;)

I do love me some ska and old school reggae. If Toots and the Maytals doesn't get you up on your feet, there's really something wrong.

Buju Banton takes me back a bit. Under rated by a lot of people, but still enjoyed by those who remember 'the good times'.

No U-Tube here at work (the rumor is that you can find porn on there!!!!), So I will just have to imagine all the rock and roll goodness......

Totally off topic, I saw a story about a woman dialling 999 to complain about the rabbit she had bought did not have big floppy ears. I also noted that Charon picked up the story. In the comments section, I assured his readers that you do in fact have big floppy ears...
