Sugar Minott: Love Gonna Pack Up
From Sugar Minott at Studio One (Soul Jazz, 2004)
Shyam Brass Band: Dum Maro Dum
From Street Music Vol. 2 (?, ????)
What Cheer? Brigade: Dum Maro Dum
Live recording (2006)
Over the last few weeks, SS readers have been kind enough to send in songs that relate to posts we’ve had. Scott C. sent in the Sugar Minott version of the Persuaders’ “Love Gonna Pack Up” – a beaut of a reggae-fied remake of the song.
A few weeks back, George L. of the What Cheer? Brigade sent me two different brass band versions of “Dum Maro Dum.” The first is by India’s Shyam Brass Band, the other by the Brigade themselves. Who knew the song was so popular? (Uh, apart from everyone who knew the song was so popular).
Thanks for sharing folks!
