Here's a live video from our gig with the Skamasters back in August 2010, more of a Ska feel to this as we changed it slightly for the Ska fans.......

It's an original, as is all our set, written by our lead singer Errol. He present's them to us as some kind of Bob Dylan/acoustic folk number & we sneer at it then reggae-fy it. This one started out as more of a ska number, but then we slowed the beats down especially on the chorus which although you can't really hear it due to audio limitations has quite a lot of tom tom work on it. The live version we returned to the ska beat in the chorus (which I prefer) partly due to the crowd but also I struggle to play the proper rhythm on somebody else's drumkit as I have my kit set up different to most drummers.
The song was recorded in my front room & features myself on 2 out of the the 3 keyboards on it!

That's beautiful - TYStevo - for showing us the process Errol is very gifted.
It may not be your cup of tea - please send this off to some Christian radio stations - on my drive from here to North Carolina - there is nothing but.... it really appeals - I hope you try - The Bible Belt is alive and a massive market here : )

The 'Father' Errol is singing about is one Jah Ras Tafari His Imperial Majesty King Haile Selaisse rather than the Holy Trinity........ Wink
