Get Your Heads Straight

Earlier this week The Swede featured King Tubby's great "Straight To The Copycat Head". Back in the mid 1970s there was a bit of craze for songs called "Straight To [Insert Name Here] Head" in reggae circles. It started off as a simple beef between Prince Jazzbo and I Roy, then I Roy took a pop at Derrick Morgan and after that all hell broke loose. 

Here are the ones I've got. I expect there are more.

"Straight to I Roy's Head" - Prince Jazzbo

"Straight To Prince Jazzbo's Head" - I Roy

"Straight To Derrick Morgan's Head" - I Roy

"Straight To The Capitalist Head" - King Tubby & The Aggrovators

 Fortunately U Roy and Big Youth stayed aloof from it all.

  1. No video of the "Going Straight", the post-Porridge Ronnie Barker series?
