Studio One / Horace Andy original that has been frequently versioned since early seventies. Many recuts has been made, not only of the riddim, but also of theoriginal lyrics. Check Garnet Silk's exellent Steele & Clevie version. This is one of many good recuts of classic riddims from Barry O'hare/X-rated.

'Got This Feeling' sounds much more like Babatunde/Created than Skylarking

Babatunde is actually called "Created By The Father", a Dennis Brown original I think.

It's in jamrid under "Created..."
