Day 46 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Ranking Joe - Ask Me No Question

Track 46 of 365... A little Ranking Joe for a Wednesday!  This tune is called "Ask Me No Question," was produced by Joe Gibbs and released on the Town & Country label circa 1978.  This tune is basically a conglomeration of proverbs telling people to respect one other... I'm particularly fond of, "spit in the sky and it'll fall into your eye," which basically means what you do or what bad you wish for others will eventually be the cause of your own downfall.  A bit of wisdom over a nice horn-heavy riddim!
