I have a masochistic habit of listening to Caribbean soul covers and other genre blending interpretations of pop music. Don't get me wrong, we can thank that marriage for certain offspring like ska and cumbia. But be warned, a stain on that legacy lives in Trinidad, and has found it's way onto soca records so ugly that one listen has left me permanently scarred.
I did find this one that is hauntingly excellent. Sort of sounds like Albert Griffiths from the Gladiators. Or am I thinking Ashanti Roy from the Congos?
