Well I thought I might be doing something revolutionary here but the man like Stretch beat me to and by some years too. So, I'm not gonna bother with what I was planning to write as you can get the gist right here. Instead I will mention Marley's incredible scratching at the beginning and the end. It's been on heavy rotation for the last week or so and the scratching still blows me away. I always wanted to cut like that, you know like a long sentence from an acapella or whatever and break it down on time to the beat. In fact I tried numerous times, the most memorable being the acapella from Michael Jackson's 'Bad' over a beat from one of those Simon Harris looped break beat albums. I got high praise indeed from a couple of work mates who owned their own mobile disco - the type that play weddings and birthdays and only have Stock, Aitken and Waterman records - so their opinion was kind of valued. Anyone's was I guess. I don't have the tape any more so you're spared but I wouldn't if I did I don't think. Anyway, enjoy the record, the B-side track, 'Take It Off' is dope too, and I'll submit more cheesy memories when I remember 'em.

Re-up as requested earlier on in the week.
And look, it really is a whistle.
Well, whistle shaped.
Paid five quid for that off a dude called Dominic who was in a graf crew from Sheffield called TDK.
I bought the best of Techno Hop LP off him at the same time.
It's rumoured that he sold his Roland 808 drum machine to Ruthjoy but I don't know how true that is.
He let me have a go on it while I was there checking out his wax for sale.
