Here is Junior Delgado’s work out of this classic Wailers/Leslie Kong collaboration…featuring the great Rita Marley of I-Three on backing vocals.
Recorded for the Beverley’s label, “Caution”/”Stop That Train” was released on Summit out of the UK in 1971. The song is notable for it’s true rocksteady riddim. Also of note is the vocal arrangement where the harmonies are as strong as the lead. The song, penned by Bunny Wailer, chronicles the search, frisk and abuse he underwent before being locked up for a lengthy period on account of a single spliff on a rainy night in Kingston (“When it wet it slippery, when it damp yuh crampy”).
