"Steppin' Razor"

Blue Öyster Cult (rehearsal demo, 1975): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oe8sI4uG-U

Peter Tosh & The Wailers (original, 1967): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4KIdui1B4Y
Peter Tosh (re-recording, 1977): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wg9g09I60YE

Interesting that B.Ö.C. seem to have heard the original recording.

Galaxy - Book of Rules - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdTOUF03BqY
Original - [url]The Heptones - Book Of Rule = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mimUOoWqkoU[/url]



‘Leroy Sibbles & the Heptones first to put a rhydm to ‘Builders For Eternity’. The lyrics predate Leroy & come from the poem ‘A Bag of Tools’ by R.L Sharpe – year 1890

A Bag of Tools
by R. L. Sharpe

Isn’t it strange
That princes and kings,
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings,
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?

Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make—
Ere life is flown—
A stumbling block
Or a steppingstone.
Peacemakeya
