Day 253 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Lyn Taitt & The Jets - Bring It On Home
Yes, we made it home and yes there is no rest for the weary... headed down to Waverly Brewing Company for the July edition of our monthly Reggae Spin Cycle this afternoon and thanks to my forward thinking before we left for the beach, all I have to do is grab the records (and the speakers, and the stands, and the amp, and the cables) and head out the door. It will be nice to ease back into home and the usual routine by spinning some reggae this afternoon before the dreaded first Monday returning to work is hanging over my head and I'm having a hard time staying positive about that. But oh well, you're not here to listen to my complaining... today's track is a slick number by Lyn Taitt & The Jets called "Bring It On Home," and like yesterday's Mittoo it is also a cover. Lyn and company give us a rocksteady take on Sam Cooke's 1962 minor hit "Bring It On Home To Me." Featuring the vocals of The Kilowatts and originally released as a 7" in 1968 on the JJ Records label and will eventually be making its way to the weekly mix via the 2005 Trojan CD set Hold Me Tight Anthology 1965-73.
