Musical Youth – Youth Of Today (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 8th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

R E Q U E S T

Musical Youth was formed by Frederick Waite Sr. who discovered that his sons Patrick and Frederick Jr. were talented musicians. Frederick Jr. played drums and Patrick played bass. Mr. Waite invited a friend’s two sons to participate as well. Kelvin Grant played guitar while his older brother Michael played keyboards. Mr. Waite sang lead vocals himself at first.

Once the band gained notoriety from record companies, Mr. Waite decided the lead vocalist should be just as old as the boys were and so Dennis Seaton, a schoolmate of Frederick Jr.’s, took over.

In 1982, they signed to MCA Records and their first single “Pass the Dutchie” was an instant hit.

The bands second single “Youth Of Today” and the title of their debut album did not garner the same impact as their previous single “Pass The Dutchie”. In the United States “Youth Of Today” failed to chart while in the UK the single peaked at #13. The songs highest chart position was in the Netherlands where it reached #4.

Musical Youth – Pass The Dutchie (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

R E Q U E S T

“Pass the Dutchie” is a reggae song recorded by the British group Musical Youth from their 1982 album The Youth of Today. It was a major hit, holding the number one position on the UK singles charts for three weeks in October 1982.

The song was the band’s first release on a major label. It was a cover version of two songs: “Pass the Kouchie” and “Gimme the Music” by The Mighty Diamonds, which deals with the recreational use of cannabis, “kouchie” being slang for a cannabis pipe. For the cover version, the song’s title was bowdlerized to “Pass the Dutchie”, and all obvious drug references were removed from the lyrics; e.g., when the original croons “How does it feel when you got no herb?”, the cover version refers to “food” instead. “Dutchie” is used as a patois term to refer to a food cooking pot such as a Dutch oven in Jamaica and the Caribbean. It has since become a drug reference in itself, denoting a blunt stuffed with marijuana and rolled in a wrapper from a Dutch Masters cigar, since American and British listeners assumed that the term were a drug reference.

The song was first championed by radio DJ Zach Diezel and became an instant hit when it was picked up by MCA Records in September 1982. It debuted at #26 on the UK chart and rose to #1 the following week. In February of the following year, it reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the USA. The song also scored the #1 position in five other countries, eventually selling over 5 million copies worldwide.
