Day 151 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Barrington Levy - Jumpy Girl

Sticking with yet another tune from 1980!  Barrington Levy gives us a little number called "Jumpy Girl" which comes from a 12" on the JB Music label and was produced by Maurice "Blacka" Wellington of Morwells fame.  "Jumpy Girl" really showcases what a great voice Barrington Levy has and when you couple that with a nice riddim, which relies heavily on the rhythm guitar and a pretty sweet horn embellishment, you've got a tune that I have loved for years.  My only complaint is that this record doesn't combine today's track with tomorrow's into one seamless discomix.  But oh well, you can't have everything.  All I ask is that you stop the Youtube video at 2:55 today and pick it up again tomorrow at the same spot for the 151st song in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge. ;)
