Ansell Collins talks to the Jamaica Gleaner about that famous tune. A few months ago the Gleaner also discussed this with Winston Riley. Though Riley got his dates wrong it’s good to see that the stories match up.
Thanks for the link Tim. I think ‘Double Barrel’ was the first Reggae record I bought. I must have played it thousands of times over the years and still do. I really like the rhythm and play the version side a lot. It was really interesting to find out who played on the session. I knew about Sly and (obviously) Ansell but didn’t know about the others. Trust ace Engineer Lynford ‘Andy Capp’ Anderson to be involved too!
