Day 133 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Frankie Paul - Casanova

Okay... this is the last Kuff tune to wrap-up the week.  Frankie Paul gives us "Casanova," and like the tunes from the previous five days, also produced by King Jammy and released in 1988.  And unlike Leroy Gibbons' track a couple days back, F.P. didn't have to reach back too far for this one... a cover of the LeVert song from the year before.  Paul Blake AKA Frankie Paul is one of early dancehall's greatest singers and this track is a good example of how he has been able to seamlessly transition from one prevalent style/sound to the next over the years.  Unfortunately he has had some medical issues as of late but thankfully Frankie Paul still remains active...
