A total rip. Someone should sue, but both Mack and Luther have died, so...
i know i wasn't there and all, but as far as i know, the song jah is doing ("the liquidator") came before the staples' version. and there's even a vocal version before "the liquidator"
Apparently everyone knew but me. I was just surfing around and found that Jah Wobble vid. When that song came on I thought it sounded familiar but didn't give it much thought. Then someone pointed out it sounds like "I'll take you there".
I just saw this on a wiki.... "The song is "almost completely a call-and-response chorus",
with the introduction being lifted from "The Liquidator
", a 1969 reggae hit by the Harry J Allstars
Had no idea this was so well know.
I did hear though if you play some Beatles records backwards.....
