Born On A Monday

Buried on a Sunday. From ancient British nursery rhyme - also known as Solomon Grundy - straight to infectuous early-sixties ska song. As a bonus: two more songs that namecheck Solomon and his rather rapid decline. And as the mighty Big Youth toasts over K.C. White's Anywhere But Nowhere, and the fun duo Lloyd & Carey utilises World Upside Down by Joe Higgs, you get to hear these excellent roots tunes as well. Big up.

Eric Morris - Solomon Gundie
Lloyd & Carey - Down Side Up
Joe Higgs- World Upside Down
Big Youth - Solomon A Gunday
K.C. White - Anywhere But Nowhere

I think this rhyme was referenced in The Pogue's Billy's Bones too.
