Dear Lady Twist - Gary U. S. Bonds 1961

Could this cut be any more Ska? This kind of skip-beat came up down south, New Orleans, Memphis, Kansas City. The records, and the bands too,were popular down in Jamaica.

No criticism, that's just music. It's like a river, no, it's like fifty rivers starting way up there and twisting around each other down the line, feeding each other, learning a lick here, leaving an influence there.

It's music.
