I've always been a fan of the little three note interjections in "My Girl" by The Techniques.

Maybe it's because I only heard it for the first time recently, but I love Lenky's Step Softly on the B-side of several vocals that I don't like much. Very very odd, but still a Wicked Choon :!: Must fall into the Wacky category.

I've been racking my brains as to where it came from - Love Story or Dr. Zhivago - but it looks as though it might be "Love's Theme from The Godfather" ?

Can't think who they were by, but I have a vague feeling there were lots of old opera/ballet reggae licks around 1970 fronted by a Hammond Organ sound - such as Swan Lake and Hall Of The Mountain King and stuff like that.

Hell, you wouldn't expect me to admit owning them would you :P

Jerry Lewis - Rhythm of Pleasure (Jackpot 7")

Always wondered who was tappin' the keys on that one.

I would think that Jackie Mittoo's Wild Jockey lp for Lloyd Barnes must qualify in more ways than one.

That beautiful solo on Ottis Gayle's "I'll be around" (Studio One). Probably played by Jackie Mittoo, right?
