50,000 watt radio stations in the U.S. and Mexico that used to play early R&B and Jump Blues were very popular in Jamaica.
They loved the Fat's Domino sound.
Plenty of talented musicians on the island didn't have the money for pianos and pianos are hard to lug around. The recreated the sound of the jump blues piano by having the bass player play the left hand and the guitar player playing the right. Bass guitar stomping the down beat and guitar raking on the up.
Very influential Fats Domino song on the island, hell the guitar would be at home on an early ska album.
One of the first domestic Jamacian albums ever produced.
Fats Domino had a huge influence on the development of Rocksteady, which became Ska and then Reggae. Reggae was hugely influential in the development of early Hip Hop and lots of Punk Rock. Of course there are many other influences to all these styles but Fats was a link.
I don't know my Fats that well but I know early Jamaican music passingly well.
