Reggae Covers: Jackie Mittoo – Summer Breeze (Seals & Crofts)

Posted on Updated on

There are two key covers of the 1972 Seals & Crofts original drifting around reggae playlists, the first by St. Ann, Jamaica’s Jackie Mittoo released more or less contemporaneously with the original, and the second perhaps better-known 1999 version: a rewritten take by Kentish singer Shinehead.

Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind
