SIR LORD COMIC – DOCTOR FEELGOOD

A: Sir Lord Comic – Doctor Feelgood

B: Reggae Boys – Reggae Train

 

Sir Lord Comic jivetalks Nicky Thomas’ ‘Don’t touch me’ to great heights in his own distinguished style. I haven’t a clue what he’s on about in the spoken intro – “hey Georgie, take this advice of a closet full a clothes, I’d like to see my boys in the shop/sharp .. [this is what I’m hearing, not sure if i’m correct. Or rather, pretty sure i’m mistaking, because, well.. it doesn’t make sense, does it?!], but when the music hits, it’s all good advice and a bit of joyful boasting the good lord brings us. Reviving his ol’ late ska hit ‘Great wuga wuga’ he now states “Here I bring you, the riddim of the day, for you to swing and sway!  And indeed, although it would be one of his last recordings, Doctor Feelgood sure is in full swing on this cut. That said, I don’t recall ever seeing this tune on an official release, neither Jamaican nor UK press, so if you dig what you hear, you got to chase the blanks.
