I think you missed the connection between "Roll With Me" and bounce music. To me, that is probably one of the reasons this song is a classic – because it basically is a bounce second-line song. Put on any bounce record and you gon’ hear all the wards called out (like he did), put on DJ Jubilee’s music and you will hear "Who that call the police?", "I don’t know what you been told, but I love them project ho’s". There are MANY similarities between this song and a bounce song – matter of fact, if you take out the brass band behind Glenn David Andrews and put the two "Trigger Mans" behind him, it would probably be a bounce hit.

Tuta, you make a good point. But once you bring that up, you have to explain what bounce is. And who Jubilee is.  And what "Trigger Man" is. Etc. There might be five to ten people reading this who have any idea what you’re talking about.
