Day 131 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Leroy Gibbons - This Magic Moment

The hell with it... let's round out the week on the Kuff riddim!  Up next is Leroy Gibbons with his 1988 Jammys produced cover of "This Magic Moment."  This tune was originally recorded by Ben E. King & The Drifters in 1960 and peaked at number 16 on the Billboard Top 100.  It was later re-recorded by the group Jay & The Americans in 1969 and topped out at number 6 but much like any reggae cover of a pop tune, the Jamaican version sounds a whole lot sweeter... at least to me... but like I've stated before I admit I'm a little biased.
