Day 11 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Scotty - Skank In Bed

Up next is a tune from David Scott AKA Scotty called "Skank In Bed" and it's basically the DJ version of Lorna Bennett's classic cover of the Dusty Springfield song "Breakfast In Bed."  Bennett's vocals are interspersed throughout the track and the end-result is one that I've always dug.  When Scotty breaks down the riddim and "calls out" a talent-less trespasser in the studio halfway through the track... absolutely classic!  Produced by Harry J in 1972 and originally released on his namesake label and simultaneously on both Island and its Blue Mountain imprint, it's a killer tune!
