Super Cat - Walk A Thon 7'' [1984 Midnight Rock Original Pressing]

Only the second single that Super Cat released after his Mr Walker 12'' for Winston Riley's Techniques label. This is on Jah Thomas's label, and isn't really a digital tune. Still a part of dancehall history, as Cat went on to be one of the scene's biggest and controversial artist. Note how he was referred to as the Indian aka the Wild Apache. He got the nickname because of his East Indian heritage. Many Indians were brought to the Carribean in the 1800's to work in the cane fields, and an estimated 36,000 came to Jamaica alone.
