Day 6 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Joe Tex & U Black - Friday Evening

Yes, folks it's Friday and nothing could be more appropriate than this ode to one of the sweetest days of the week!  A Joe Gibbs/Errol T produced combination stylee on the Real Rock riddim with Joe Tex and U Black called "Friday Evening" from 1979 on the Belmont label!  You'll see some inconsistencies with my story when you check out the attached video because the Belmont release states that the A-side is called "Rub A Dub Evening" but the original release a year earlier on the Joe Gibbs label clearly titled the vocal side as "Friday Evening." Maybe Gibbs didn't want to relegate the playing of this tune to just Friday so he flipped the titles on the later release?  Regardless, some sweet vibes for the end of the work week!
