Reggae Covers: Inner Circle & Jacob Miller – Rock the Boat (The Hues Corporation)

Posted on

After a slow start this 1973 recording for California’s The Hues Corporation from the album ‘Freedom for the Stallion‘ eventually skyrocketed to the top of the Hot 100 in July of 1974. Later the same year renowned Jamaican journeymen Inner Circle, backing the inestimable Jacob Miller, released this cover on their eponymously-named ‘Rock The Boat’ LP on Trojan Records.

Our love is like a ship on the ocean
We’ve been sailing with a cargo full of love and devotion

So I’d like to know where you got the notion
Said I’d like to know where you got the notion

To rock the boat (don’t rock the boat, baby)
Rock the boat (don’t tip the boat over)
Rock the boat (don’t rock the boat baby)
Rock the boat…
