Hooligan in court and the Wailers lose

“Somewhere in the ’60s there was a rude boy phenomena and I was then a member of the Jamaica Federation of Women and they wanted me to do a television discussion on the subject,” siad Burke.

“But I told them that they were preaching to the converted. We really needed to get a voice that the masses would hear, so I said ‘why don’t I write a song for Marley and the Wailers’. They didn’t all approve. Anyhow, I wrote the lyrics, took it to Steven Dodd. The song was recorded, I got six copies of the record…,” recalled Burke.

A really interesting story in the Jamaica Observer.
