The lead singer on this track, James "Jimmy" Lee, is my first cousin. This was such a thrill for me as a kid..."my cousin's got a record!". Thanks for posting this wonderful memory.

De La Soul sampled this in 1991's "Rap de Rap Show."

Absolutely priceless! This is one of those moments that reinforces what an amazing resource YouTube is. I can now say that "I saw Bette at the Baths." Wonderful to see two legends in the making. Thanks so much!

Yes, James "Jimmy" Lee, the drummer on this track, is my first cousin. This band was earlier known as "Big T & The Upsetters."

Thank you ever so much for this post! This film also captured my imagination at a tender age; I was six when it first aired. I remember being mystified by the phenomenon of blackface and plying my older sister with a barrage of questions. I've not seen it since and have been feverishly searching for it for all these years...until now. What a magnificent event this teleplay was and is. It should indeed be required viewing for our youth. Many thanks again, with peace and blessings.

That spoken interlude slays me every time! One of the greatest of all time.
