Original to Tapper Zukie's "Living in the ghetto"

What IS this???? I taped the dub off Tony Williams' show back in '79/'80 and I know it's by Johnny Clarke but that's about all I know.
Cheers in advance.

Perhaps it is the same tune as "Ghetto Rock" ont the "Peace In The Ghetto" LP which use several J Clarke tune produced by B Lee?

If yes, the tune use for Ghetto Rock is JC's "Peace And Love In the Ghetto".

Hope it serves

Cheers but alas it's definitely not a cut to "Peace & Love in the ghetto" (which I do have). It's really bugging me this. I bet Champion will know.....

You're right about that Johnny Clarke/Tapper Zukie match up Wareika, but I'm sure 'Living In The Ghetto' is a different tune. Need to pack up work (sooooon please!!!) and go home to check which one though.

original was "It's You I Love" by the Techniques for Duke Reid.

Barry Brown did it as "Serious Man"

I have it on the Deejay Version page of Johnny Clarke .com as being on - Peace In The Ghetto, but there's a possibility it could be on a version of 'In The Roots Of The Ghetto'. I don't have the Zukie cut so can't say for sure, if yo post a sound clip somewhere i could help out maybe..

"Dance this Rebel Music / Smile Dub-Johnny Clarke..... cuts to Johnny Clarke's vocal of ' Best to rise with a smile on your face'." extracted and paraphrased from `johnnyclarke.com`(could`nt find any other reference to the tune though !).... in other words a cut of `silvertones - smile` and the rhythm upon which the toast is based.

The track in question is on the lp of the same name. I have it on a US pressing on the Stars label.


Listening again I realize that (to my ears at least) 'It's You I love' and 'Stars' have closely similar if not identical bass-lines.
