Legendary Jamaican vocal harmony group The Pioneers have collaborated with the ace producer Clive ‘Azul’ Hunt on the brand-new version of a Beatles’ album cut from 1965 “You Won’t See Me”.

“You Won’t See Me” first appeared on the 1965 album Rubber Soul, a hugely underrated album track written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and produced by George Martin. The track went on to become quite the Soundsystem hit in Jamaica when The Clarendonians covered the song for Coxson Dodd at Studio One in 1966. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Jamaica’s relationship with The Beatles.

With cover songs proving to be incredibly popular, ‘Fab Four’ band members are quoted as expressing their love for all things Jamaican in a number of interviews. Another chart-topping song in the late ’60s, and perhaps one of the most famous songs about a horse ever written, was “Long Shot By The Bucket” by The Pioneers, a song that went on to convert a generation of Brits into Reggae fanatics.
“You Won’t See Me” is the first single from the forthcoming ‘Rub-A-Dub Soul’ album on VP Records which features foundation artists such as Barry Biggs, The Tamlins and Little Roy plus contemporary singers Tarrus Riley & Gentleman and a number of new talents from around the world such as Nai-Jah, Yannis Odua & Danakil.
