I WASN'T AROUND * ERIC MORRIS * RIO 72 * UK
Eric Morris seems to be having a pop at someone in particular on this mid paced Ska cut that has some nice instrumental breaks, first from a trumpet and then from a saxophone. known as 'grudge' records, singers and producers would often hold recorded musical slaging matches, sometimes tongue-in-cheek and other times quite serious - like the rivalry between Coxsone Dodd's and Duke Reid's sound systems - I get the feeling that Eric also meant it on this one.
