Reggae Progenitors: Andy & Joey – You’re Wondering Now (The Specials)

Posted on Updated on

The 1964 original by Andy & Joey lacks the signature disaffected sloth of The Specials‘1979 version from their eponymous LP, comprised as it is of gravelly urban voices muttering unenthusiastically but with irony intact.

You’re wondering now, what to do, now you know this is the end
You’re wondering how, you will pay, for the way you did behave

C & N Records; Brentford Rd. Recorded at Jamaica Recording Studio.
