Yeah, too many to mention but thumbs up for the knock-off of James Brown's Make It Funky called 'Make it Reggae' by Shark Wilson and The Heaters

Hi Chaps,

Hate to put my thumb to my nose and go "ner ner ner ner ner" :D but Jerry Butler, William Bell and Mike Williams are three different tunes with the same title.

Gregory's killer is a cover of the Mike Williams tune.

Respect

Eee... ya big-headed git, Gordon - no one likes a smart arse! Go on, do it though, you deserve it!

:lol:


Hate to 'ner ner' back at you, but I just got Gregory to sing WB's version down the phone to me whilst I recorded it over a nice little Bontempi riddim which I just knocked up!

Forgot about the Don Bryant version on Hi too, which is definitely the same as the Jerry Butler. I think the William Bell MAY be the same but it's been changed a bit.

The Mike Williams is definitely a different tune though and that's the one that Gregory covered.

Of course I'm now going to have to do a radio show of reggae covers of soul tunes!! :D
