Reggae's Expanding with Sly and Robbie
There have been a couple of passing references on the blogosphere recently to the Tom Tom Club the side project of Talking Head's husband and wife team of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth.
All of which is a good enough excuse, as if an excuse was needed, to play the genius that is Genius of Love.
This track pays homage to a number of their heroes including Smokey Robinson, Kurtis Blow, Bob Marley and of course Sly and Robbie the legendary Jamaican rhythm section and production duo.
The list of artists they have worked with is truly amazing.
Here are Messrs Dunbar and Shakespeare with one of their own efforts purchased for 99p from Woollies in Campbeltown.
