Max Romeo – Wet Dream (1968)

Scroll down to content

Later on in 1968, Romeo wrote new lyrics for the rhythm track of Derrick Morgan’s “Hold You Jack” and handed them over to Lee. Morgan, who was due to add his vocals to the track, ultimately gave it a miss, as did several other vocalists (including John Holt and Slim Smith), leading the producer to turn to Romeo to sing the lyrics he had written. The result, “Wet Dream”, was an instant hit in Jamaica, although in the UK it was met with a BBC Radio ban, despite Romeo’s somewhat-disingenuous claim that the song was actually about a roof that has a leak!
