A Public Service Announcement from Pato Banton: "Don't Sniff Coke" 12 inch
Heres a classic late 80s number, "don't sniff coke," off the Pato Banton/Ranking Roger 1988 Album, "Never Give In"
I found this 12 inch single when i was in Florida a couple years ago and i was psyched when i spotted it!
This video is from decades later, but its an interesting piece, nonetheless:
i think the song is a playful one, but it has a strong message, released during a time when the crack epidemic was pretty much raging
Heres the A side, "come again"
And just for fun, i came across this cheesy music video they did, great timepiece for the era.... a chef kitchen concept video for "bubbling hot" complete with dancing crabs
...yep, you heard me right... a dancing crab.ok....i think its a lobster, actually
