Shaka Samba - Carry Something Fi Me 7'' [1987 Oneness Original Pressing]

Catchy little Sleng Teng tune, on same version as Chicken Chest's Don't Kill Entertainer, also on Oneness (the two tracks appear together on a 12'' release). I believe I posted the Chicken Chest on here previously, though may need a reup. Lyrics talk about going abroad and all your family and friends asking you to pick them up something while you're there. Very real situation, as much of Jamaica's informal economy depended on foreign goods brought in by higglers and merchants in this manner. Apparently Samba did not fancy himself in this regard haha!
