Unknown Reggae Organ song?

Postby ulua-bob » Fri Dec 17, 2004 3:12 am

I am trying to figure out a song I have heard a number of times on the French reggae station Planet Reggae, and what album it is on. It is a duo with a man and woman singing. It has a late sixties, early seventies feel to it, with a strange fuzzy-sounding Hammond organ(?) sound/solo that almost sounds like an old electric buzzer. Some of the lyrics go something like. . .

Holy, holy fishy(?) holy fishy
Wind, wind your body line

the organ/buzzer sound seems to edit out what might have been a line too "slack" for its time with the lyrics of that line going . . .
"hold your (something) in the night, and my [buzzer/organ sound] will rise to the sky"

It has a rocksteady beat essentially, but the organ stuff gives a really unique sound. The "holy fishy" part is the most repeated line. Anyone know anything about it??
