The Gaylettes vs. El Perro Del Mar

The Gaylettes were a female trio from Jamaica in the late ‘60s to early ‘70s made up of Beryl Lawson, Merle Clemonson, and Judy Mowatt. The group disbanded when Lawson and Clemonson left for America in the early ’70s. Mowatt remained, and went on to join Bob Marley’s famous backup troupe, The I Threes (below, left, alongside Bob). Mowatt continued to record for decades after, including a prolific spree of gospel albums between 1998-02.

Like a lot of pre-dub, rocksteady tunes of the era, The Gaylettes were minimal and have touches of soul, and even doo-wop at times. They have some real sly 45s on the Hour Glass label, including a nice cover of “Son Of A Preacher Man”, and this, one of their best songs, “Here Comes That Feeling”.

El Perro Del Mar’s first self-titled album included a cover of “Here Comes That Feeling.” The greatness of the remake is because the original is sooooooo good to begin with. Check it out.
