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 danceโ€”even after having crashed his bike on the way thereโ€”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.
