Rico Rodriguez – “Let George Do It” (1963)

Another hit recorded by the legendary Duke Reid during the golden-era of ska, this was a top single in Jamaica upon its release on the Treasure Isle label. To this day, the track is often mistakenly credited to fellow Jamaican trombonist Don Drummond but it was actually Rodriguez who blew on the recording.
