Day 250 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Dillinger - Racing Pool
I came across today's tune completely by chance a couple months ago. I was looking for more thematic summer songs for my collection and was delighted to come across this record that pays tribute to the good ol' chlorinated swimming pool, of all things! The 248th track in the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge is by the great deejay Dillinger and it's called "Racing Pool," produced by Joe Gibbs and Errol T and released as a 7" on the Belmont label in 1979. So grab your swim trunks, a towel and the waterproof sunscreen before you take a dip! Come on in... the water is fine!
