Bunny Scott – What’s The Use

Quick fling down and run today..shame as I enjoy and prefer to take my time over each and every post but today mans is on a hype ting and needs to make hay while the sun shine on this GLORIOUS winters day in Old London Town…

Today’s cut is a (urBan)musicologist favourite credited to Bunny Scott but is in fact the unmistakable sweet sound of vocalist William ‘Bunny Rugs’ Clarke aka ‘Bunny Rugs’ aka ‘Bunny Clarke’ aka Bunny Scott !! who is probably better known as lead singer and songwriter in the Internationally renowned group Third World. This one was recorded by Lee Perry sometime in 1975 at the Black Ark where he voiced some absolute KILLERS for the Upsetter at a time when, (for some reason), no other producer was interested??..for another example, (featured on themusicologist a while back), click on the link below..

  1. Love your site! Did you know the original to this song was done by US blue eyed soul grop Cates Gang? Album track from their album “Wanted” from 1972.
    Keep up the good work!

    1. anders,
      thanks for the information and for taking the time to leave a comment one of the MANY things I love about Jamaican artists is their ability to cover a song and make it their own..so many great examples…maybe time to roll out round two of the ‘coversweek’ theme on themusicologist.
