Freddie McGregor: Joggin'

written & produced by Freddie McGregor

Thanks to Prana Chim for "jogging" my memory of this classic. I love that they spliced in an even slower version of the track right at the very end [3:23], perhaps signifying "warm-down".

N.B.: This cut isn't on the album Big Ship (depicted above). I just like the cover of that one. I'm not sure whether Joggin' was ever on an LP; I have it on this.

Nice one Emmett. I've said it before and I'll say it again - we need more reggae in the blogosphere.

By the way, have I been a bad blogger? The erstwhile link from AD to 'The Ghost Of Electricity' is no more, but I'm still here and I still loves ya.

*weep*

Not to worry, David. I lost the links when I switched over to the new layout format. Will put them all back in soon, plus new ones that should have gone in a long time ago. Apologies to all who may be experiencing a tiny yet measurable hit reduction in the meantime...

Yay!

*sighs with immeasurable relief and sheds genuine tears of gratitude*

I love this song. Does he really say "race track shoes and thick bobby socks"? Great detail.

Great track. I'm about to enjoy it on my morning run.

Actually the track was released as a discomix on 12", which means that after the vocal version follows an instrumental/ dub version. They cut it out on the "Story of jamaican music" but you can listen to it here:
