Saturday Scratch #49 - Junior Dan

Saturday Scratch, an occasional series that shines a light on a selection with a Lee 'Scratch' Perry connection.


The new laptop still hasn't materialised. 48 hour delivery? Pah! So, to prevent another potential hard-drive crash on the old one, I'm keeping things brief. My house isn't much of a home without a reliable computer and all the music it contains - there's certainly an air of tension around the place anyway. So here's Junior Dan's self-produced debut single, a dense, atmospheric cover of the Bacharach & David classic, recorded at The Black Ark in 1973 and released the following year.

Woozily wonderful. Hope you get your technology problems sorted out soon - how did we ever manage without this stuff? Two day delivery? They just make this up.

Just checked the tracking online to find that the laptop was dispatched on August 4th....from China! I'll stop holding my breath for a while now.
