MP3 file:



Derrick Harriot, Studio One, late 60's. This is a sample from the original, a great song. Often versioned, Carlton Livingstons Don't Follow Rumors and his resent version of it with Shabba are Solomon cuts. Maybe someone remember What About Right, Oink! with Eastwood and Saint, also a Solomon version.

Maple supplied music and info to this one too.

One of the best riddims...so simple, yet so beautiful. The bassline drives this riddim home like no other.

Soloman was produced by Derrick Harriot, as opposed to being a Studio 1 riddim & was recorded in 1967 or 68.

As far as I know this was originally done by Murvin Smith Jnr. as Junior Soul probably for the Musical Chariot since he wrote the lyrics: "Solomon was the wisest man, but he never know the secret of a woman. I am wiser than Solomon so girl don't play no tricks...Girl leave Soul alone!" He recorded his most famous version with the Upsetter in 1977.
