Don’t often say this, but first time I heard this remix it blew me away. It could be me getting old, I know, but what the Washington based funkateers did to Marley’s classic Duppy Conqueror is simply great. Fort Knox Five stay close enough to the original spirit of the song, but still give the original skank a wonderfull swing. Great (re)work.
The tune is taken from the 2007 release ‘Roots, Rock, Remixed’, xhich also features their ska fuelled mix of ‘Soul Shakedown Party’.
Here’s the original Duppy Conqueror.
And here’s them playing the song during rehearsals.
