Reggae Singles 01

I'll tell what I like to do.  I like to stay up late in the evening and play seven inch singles.

I am a man of simple pleasures and this is mine.

Late in the evening when the world is quiet I sit next to my stereo and go through my singles.  Most of them were purchased second hand so some of the records have pops and scratches.  But that's fine.  Those pops and scratches take me there.  I listen to the music.  And I smoke herb.  And I dream.

I'm thinking to start posting a few singles.

 Let's get started.

1) The Starlites - Some A Weh A Bawl   (G.G.Records 1975)
2) Toil and Tears - Respect Jah Jah Children  (Federal Records 1975)
3) Roots of the Field - Selassi I (Records Inc.)
4) Easton Clarke - Bike No License (Micron)

Me bike no license
Having a bag of weed
Coming from Harbor view
Oh lord, arrive in a curfew.

My first lud two years
Me other is a suckling
What can I do?
Oh lord, arrive in a curfew.

I'm lock down in jail
I'm looking through the rail
My rent soon due
Oh lord, arrive in a curfew

Wat a money letter
I sent it by the officer
Please don't cry Lou
Oh lord, arrived in a curfew.

Oh lord natty rived in a curfew.
