GIVE TO GET * SHENLEY DUFFAS * ISLAND 036 * UK
A D Darling (Coxsone Dodd) production JA, Shenley Duffas is in didactic mood on this one with what seems to be a message that runs contrary to accepted notions of giving; that one gives not to receive but for the pleasure of giving. There is an old Jamaican proverb which runs: Gib a ting and 'tek a ting' a bad man playting. I. e. It is the trifling of a bad man to give and take back a thing.
