Single (Heritage Records, 1969)

To usher in the weekend, we have a track chosen by WNUR’s Faculty Advisor/former Fast & Loud host, Dr. Phil Scepanski.

Though coming from the “Beach Music” scene associated more with the Carolinas, Bill Deal and the Rhondels hailed from Virginia Beach. With the busy horn section and exaggerated backbeat, this was one of many songs where they showed the influence of the flourishing ska and rocksteady artists of Jamaica.
