Great title for super rare reggae comp

Postby GoogaMooga » 01 Dec 2019, 15:50

"You Can't Wine", one of the rarest reggae records, now finally out on CD.

The title, oh man, what a title. Triple punny, patois punny. "You can't wine" as in: you can't drink / you can't whine / you can't win... in other words, you can't this and that, or just, you can't. You must not. You are not able to. See how layered it is? Great title.

'Wining' is a style of dance in Jamaica.

Okay, thanks, that sort of wipes out my interpretations. You can still read it as layered puns, though, if you really want to. :)

Wine is the name of the girl on the cover.
She's a very well known Jamaican model.

Wine is pronounced WEE-NAY. I don't know what the fuck that means.

:? So, if I really try hard, I get to wine and dine with Wine, after we have wined? Spill the wine, dig that girl...
