The rhythm track for 'Samfy Girl' was originally produced by Lloyd Campbell for Busty Brown's 'You Inspire Me (aka Oh Girl') in 1971. Keeling Beckford recalls "On a Friday night, me and Junior Byles, we went by Lee Perry's Black Ark studio, Lloyd played the track and asked Junior to do something on it, but Junior didn't like the track. I was hungry at the time for another hit record, so I came up with the lyrics "Samfy Girl". It took an hour and a half to put the song together, with the help of Junior Byles and Lee Perry"2016 - Switzerland
