A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Fold, Spindle, Mutilate, and Rock Steady

Alton Ellis makes me happy.

Sometimes I thing reggae music, or at least the rock steady version of it, can fix any rock or pop song, even the ones like this Junior Walker song that didn’t need any fixing. It’s fresh and familiar at the same time, the holy grail of cover bands.

Or you could rely on Toots to brighten your Sunday. I often do. Toots and the Maytals took this one from West Virginia to Saturn and kept going.

Come on, cover bands. Give it a try. Fold, spindle, and mutilate that shite.
