Yagga Yagga

Yagga Yagga - Lee & Jimmy

 

Music is filled with records where the B-side outweighs the A-side; "Yagga Yagga" definitely falls into this category. While "Rasta Train" is certainly an enjoyable tune, "Yagga Yagga" is a rocking scorcher that really should have been more famous in the Lee Perry catalogue.

After a mostly unintelligible bit of dialogue, the song starts with a prowling organ riff before the brakes are released and the song explodes into a raucous nursery rhyme. The Jimmy in Lee & Jimmy is Jimmy Riley, who also appears on the A-side and cut the excellent "I Man Stand Still" for Scratch.
