“Moonwalk” by Winston Wright

Was there a more talented organ player during the skinhead reggae era than Winston Wright? Jackie Mittoo is certainly the darling of the reggae scene in regards to the ridicolous number of tunes he managed to pump out through membership in The Skatalites, Soul Vendors, Soul Brothers and Sound Dimension and his later solo releases. But Winston kind of took over in the early days of the reggae sound, with Glen Adams of Upsetters and Hippy Boys fame being his main competition. This tune right here is Winston at his finest, killing it on his Hammond A100 to any listeners delight. If you can track down a copy of The Dynamites “Fire Corner’ LP you can listen to Winston do his thing over the course of a number of tracks. The man was talented.
