9. Don Gorgon on Bail

YES MI FRIEND/MI FRIEND/THE GORGON DEH PON STREET AGAIN: An obscure production from Wayne Smith re-interpolating “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” over the massive Head to Toe riddim, this tune describes a long night driving from session to session, chatting on sounds in Westmoreland, and being harassed by police. Ultimately after attending a dance—even after having crashed his bike on the way there—he is arrested by the police during his performance for swearing. Considering his recent release from jail on bail, this one has a startling freshness for a tune of its vintage.
