Saturday Scratch #24

Here's The Mighty Diamonds with their 1974 lament for lost love, 'Talk About It', together with a sweet version featuring Lee Perry's children, Marsha and Omar, chanting hypnotically over the rhythm.

Later that year, Scratch re-used the same rhythm for U-Roy's 'Yama Khy' and was clearly pleased with the efforts of his offspring, placing them high in the mix.

Two classics, not so sure about the offspring...but I suppose LP knows best

I'm not so sure about them either Old Pa, but you've got to give ol' Scratch full marks for trying something different.
