Shirley & Lee: I'm Gone -- Original Jamaican Sound System Style: 21 R'n'B Scorchers (1952)
Derrick Morgan & Hortense Ellis: I Am Gone -- Trojan Club Reggae Box (Trojan 2000)

I was wrong to say on air that Shirley & Lee "invented ska" in the United States in 1952.

It's just that "I'm Gone" sounds soooo Jamaican. Let's say they invented Jamaican R & B.

New Orleans singing duo Shirley Goodman & Leonard Lee recorded "I'm Gone" with Dave Bartholomew, Fats Domino's producer, and this tune turned out to be such a shining example of New Orleans R&B, it is now well-known as the immediate progenitor of Jamaican R&B.

Still sounds great!
