Today’s Oldies Selection comes from Deejays Admiral Bailey and Chaka Demus. Titled “One Scotch” and produced in 1986 by Prince Jammy’s (Now King Jammy’s), the deejays meet up at a bar and order their regular drink choices of one Scotch, one Bergerman (Bourbon), and one Beer all while dropping lyrics about having bullas with avacado, having money to take a plane trip and even a little chant (Demus). This song was inspired by Amos Milburn’s 1950 hit “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” and became a big hit in Jamaica.
After the success of “One Scotch“, Admiral Bailey went on to have many more hits including the infamous “Love Punany Bad” while Chaka Demus went on to collaborate with singer Pliers and churn many major hits. Bailey has since changed up his deejay act to accomodate cleaner and more positive lyrics. He is also the head coach of the Tivoli Gardens football team and his last musical performance was at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival where he recieved rave reviews.
Thank you Admiral Bailey for this big hit.
