Also known as: Feel Like Jumping

Producer Winston Riley and Supercat had a big hit with Boops in the eighties. Several answer versions was released on other producers versions ofthe riddim. This is a King Jammy version from the time.
Maple sent me this:
Here's some additional info:
"Boops" riddim is based on Marcia Griffiths' "Feel like jumping" or Toots & The Maytals "54-56".An earlier Ethiopians' ska/rocksteady tune Train To Skaville also has very similar bass line.

Yep, Train To Skaville from the Ethiopians (1967) is the first issued song with this riddim (as far as I know) Toots used it to good effect on 54-46 That's my number to celebrate his release from jail, for it is a truly joyous bassline. Even British rapper Rebel MC had a big hit with this bassline in 1989 on Street Tuff.
