speaking of reggae in rock, i was listening to led zep's D'Yer Mak'er earlier and it isn't half as bad as i remembered, otherweise it's mostly disasters culminating with bob dylan doing a reggae "don't think twice" on his 78 tour, "apeman" by the kinks is a funny regaae-calypso gem sung in pseudo patois, dylan's infidels featured sly and robbie and Jokerman gets my vote as the most succesful reggae tinged song in rock (let's forget about the clash!), what more, ermmm

yes the kinks apeman is a great song, never thought of it as reggae though.

i do have this:

trinidad tripoli band: apeman/i want you back (too cool!) (7") (warner bros)

and my note made many years ago still applies to both tracks but esp the jackson 5 song.

sorry, no rolling stones content.

one love

Back on OT, I believe Infidels also features erstwhile Rolling Stone Mick Taylor. A personal favorite that album.

Earliest use of ska by a "major" rock/pop group: The Beatles' "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" (1967 edit).
