Dave and Ansil Collins- DOUBLE BARREL

Dave and Ansil Collins were early seventies session guys working with Lee Perry and others. This song is a classic ska-reggae-rockover that brought them to international success. This video is pretty funny but the song hits hard every time. I DJed this last week at a kind of emo indie night, just to see what would happen, and the little kiddies went crazy, they even started a conga line (why I don't know, and in hindsight I am a bit ashamed). It just goes to show, watch each card you play and play it slow. Classic feel here, great organ work. The mimicking melodic patterns with different synths almost give it a playground feel.
