As we all know, every American R&B song ever recorded has at some point been covered by a Jamaican artist. But few have claim-jumped their source material as energetically as Derrick Laro and Trinity did in 1980, when they cut a smoking version of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” with Laro’s clear falsetto comparing favorably with Jackson’s (the track surfaced a few years ago on Soul Jazz’s Hustle! Reggae Disco compilation). And hey, did MJ have a deejay like Trinity to toast over the groove? We think not.
