RYGIN' * BUSTERS ALL STARS * BLUE BEAT 328 * GB

This fast and punchy Ska, starts of with the warning "Watch your head" then the sound of breaking glass, followed by a mention of one 'Ivanhoe Martin' (the protagonist?) then the word "Rygin'", and some gun fire! and all this before the music starts, quite a beginning for a B side. Rygin' or Ryging was one of the infamous 'Back O'Wall' 'rude bwoys', like: 'Two Gun' Keith, Lance Scott, 'Woppi' King and 'Bur O Boy', all of whom are now, I believe, residing in the place they call the 'bone yard'.
