Day 69 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Triston Palma - Spliff Tail

We're gonna stick with the Storm riddim for the 69th tune in the challenge... one of my favorite riddims and a pretty tuff ganja tune from Triston Palma (or Palmer, depending on who you ask) who cut his first record for Bunny Lee when he was 8 years old before having a helluva career in the early dancehall era... at one point in the early 80s, Palma had 9 songs in the Jamaican Top 40 at one time!   This one is called "Spliff Tail" and it was released in 1979 on the Ossie Thomas' Black Solidarity label.
