Peanut Vendor

Also known as: Taxi

Maple helped me with this one too. According to him the original is a Cuban song called El Mansiero by a group called Don Azpiazu & Havana Casino Orchestra, recorded -31. Maple even supplied copy of it. Impressing, yes... So if I understand this right the song made it's way into the Jamaican music through the Skatalites version called Peanut Vendor.

This cut is a Leroy Smart cut from -81 called She Love It In The Morning...Guess so, yes...

Selecta july -98
