Well it's safe to say I'm not a big fan of Bob Marley's music. That being said, I totally respect him as an artist and what he means to reggae music, however his music is certainly not my cup of tea as they say. However, the reason I bring him and his music up is because in 1976 a disco group called The Chequers did an amazing cover of Marley's song "Get Up, Stand Up". This very funky track was featured on the group's hard-to-find album Check Us Out, which features other gems like Undecided Love and Check It Out (At The Disco). This record has become a much sought after album by both vinyl collectors and disco enthusiasts, and in my opinion, is well worth the costly price that it generally goes for. Here is just one of the many brilliant moments from this incredible record. Enjoy!
