Little John - Man Tonic 7'' [198x Ujama Original Pressing]

Big chune on the Jazzbo riddim better known for Manchez's Struggler 7'', repress available by DDS. I've heard a couple other versions on this MPLA riddim, including Hopeton Junior's Tell Me Darling and Prince Jazzbo's 333, which don't really sound like the Tapper Zukie original. Little John here speaks about the rise in popularity of Spanish Fly in Jamaica, which is an aphrodisiac (originally used for breeding horses) that men would slip in women drinks. Not quite a date rape drug, but still shady! Women don't want the horse tonic... they want John's man tonic!
