The Shank I Sheck originally was a 1964/1965 Ska instrumental by Baba Brooks with production by King Edward on the Rio Records label. Rio is a subsidiary of Direct Records Ltd. and later Doctor Bird which like the other top Jamaican labels of the 1960’s had most of their releases distributed by Trojan Records. There have been hundreds of songs released on various versions of this instrumental over the decades with many top rated hits peaking in the 1980s and 1990s. The riddim track was a favorite for deejays and singers to perform over and a huge dub plate riddim for sound system selectors to record dub plates on as well.
