Reggae Covers: The Upsetters – To Love Somebody (Barry & Robin Gibb)

Posted on Updated on

Jamaican all-star reggae giants The Upsetters add to the mass of covers of the Bee Gee’s 1967 classic, falling somewhere between the masterful, rocked-out  Nina Simone rendition and the efforts of Hank Williams Jr. from 1979’s ‘Family Tradition.’

A bonus listen: Busty Brown’s 1969 reggae version, another Upsetter recording. Great backing vocals; nice, understated guitars & keys.

There’s a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
