Day 194 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Wrigglers - The Cooler

Produced by Coxsone Dodd in 1968 and originally released as a 7” on the Giant label, today’s tune by The Wrigglers called “The Cooler” is one of the baddest rocksteady tunes to come out of Brentford Road!  And as you probably already know, Studio One produced tons of timeless music during the era so that is actually saying a lot!  The 7" record itself is one of those tunes that commands a huge price tag and one that I wish I could claim to have nestled in my collection but I am just as satisfied having it on the various artists collection Rock Steady Scorchers on the Coxsone label.  Dig it!
