Tapes – Somebodies Baby – Workshop
You know here at Weeds we love a cover version of a reggae tune and this week on Tom Ravenscroft‘s show we heard another great one! It’s a rendition of Pat Kelly‘s “Somebody’s Baby” by Tapes on the Workshop label as part of the Workshop 21 twelve inch EP.
We love the lo-fi-ness of it, the simple effect of someone sticking their finger on the record deck stopping the tune and it makes us think of Billy Jean by Shinehead as well, which all combines to make one great tune. Nice one Tapes! Listen to the rest of the EP here.
One to play loud while enjoying a glass of cold vino sitting in the back garden (getting bitten by midges) at the end of the day when all the weeding is done.
Here’s the original by Pat Kelly from 1968 complete with a Bunny “Striker” Lee trademark “Ready” at the start of the tune.
