This is it, the single that rocketed toasting to the top of the Jamaican charts and swept in the reign of the DJs. But it was "Wake" that roused the Jamaican mainstream from its slumber. This early on, the DJ didn't so much toast as exhort his listeners with a stream of "scabadoobadays" and enthusiastic exclamations to excite the crowds, interspersed with a laid-back patter.

In hindsight, it doesn't seem like much, but at the time it was a revelation, and U-Roy sounded the alarm bell, waking the town and telling the people that the DJs had arrived with style. Once awakened, Jamaicans set the single rocketing to the top of the chart.

    "Wake the Town" was not the first time a toaster was placed on wax, nor was it even U-Roy's debut, he'd fired up the grassroots scene with a handful of cuts for Lee Perry and Lloyd Daley earlier in But it was "Wake" that roused the Jamaican mainstream from its slumber.
