Day 219 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Viceroys - Shake Up

The Viceroys have worked under a plethora of names since they first recorded in 1967 including The Voiceroys, The Interns, The Inturns, The Brothers and The Hot Tops.  Originally comprised of Wesley Tinglin, Daniel Bernard and Bunny Gayle they made their debut with Studio One after they were rejected by Duke Reid.  Today's track "Shake Up" was one of those early rocksteady tunes and it comes from the 1995 Heartbeat CD compilation called The Viceroys At Studio One: Ya Ho.  Guaranteed good stuff for another unwelcome Monday!
