Afaik, this is based on the ever popular M16 rhythm. Sugar Minott has recorded different versions of "(Babylon) Rough Ole Life" on it. However, did he also record one at Studio One?

thanks

Not likely. Most of his Studio One recordings was recorded around 1975-78. Three compilations/albums were compiled from this material. In the year 1978 Sugar Minott started to produce himself. Brentford Rockers ~ "Bushmaster" was recorded 1981. So it was recorded after the Sugar Minott's career at Studio One. There may be a dubplate somewhere on studio one take, who knows.

That was the dibi dibi version.
The boom version was on his Roots Lovers LP which I think was at least partly recorded at Studio 1? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzeI4F3eGCk
Roots Lovers is a great LP from 1980.

@Ranking Glasses: The only tune from "Roots Lovers" album that was recorded at Studio One is "My Love Is True" .
