Five years in the making….recorded in Chicago on three separate occasions, the Jump Up split release with Happy As A Lark is finally a reality!
In 2013, Derrick Morgan performed in Chicago for a Jamaican Oldies showcase at Mayne Stage. When Derrick was asked if he was interested in recording a song while he was in town – he said YES! Anthony from The Drastics had a country-reggae-ska themed project in the works under the alter-ego TECTONICS, he produced a version of the 1950’s Webb Pierce classic “There Stands The Glass” and suggested that Derrick Morgan would be a perfect fit. When playing the backing track to Derrick over a cellphone, he immediately knew the tune (of course!) and got excited to be part of this wonderful project. A year later Jump Up brought in Dennis Alcapone to Chicago for a Jamaican Oldies showcase – they thought to themselves…let’s recreate those old 45s and have Dennis chat over the song that Derrick recorded a year earlier! A true DJ version on the flip! The project got shelved for a few years… but in 2018 Charlie Organaire went into the studio to play harmonica on the tune. It was finally complete!
