It's that time again, time for the periodic reposting of the weirdest song Duke Reid ever produced. Reid was a producer and label owner of Treasure Isle, one of the big two in ska, rocksteady and early reggae (the other being Coxsone Dodd's Studio One). He was an ex-cop who didn't allow weed in or around his studio, was not a big fan of monkey business in general, and was known to fire a round or two into the ceiling to get a point across. No weed? So how do you explain this undefinable oddball?
