The Jolly Boys

The Jolly Boys have been integral to the fabric of Jamaica’s musical landscape and cultural heritage for nearly sixty years!  The style of music The Jolly Boys play is mento, Jamaican folk that predates (and had a major influence on) ska and reggae music.  The band is back with a new album of covers entitled “Great Expectation,” that range from Amy Winehouse to the Clash!  The tracklist for “Great Expectation” is:

Passenger (Iggy Pop)
Perfect Day (Lou Reed)
Rehab (Amy Winehouse)
Should I Stay or Should I Go (The Clash)
Nightclubbing (Iggy Pop)
Hanging On The Telephone (Blondie)
Do It Again (Steely Dan)
Riders On The Storm (the Doors)
Golden Brown (The Stranglers)
I Fought The Law (The Clash)
Ring Of Fire (Johnny Cash)
Blue Monday (New Order)
You Can’t Always Get What You Want (The Rolling Stones)
Don’t You Want Me (Bonus Track) (Human League)
