As always, the original is the paradigm for excellence.
I have always loved this song, and never knew the Specials version was a cover. Dandy Livingstone rocks!

from Wikipedia:

"Rudy, A Message to You" is a 1967 rocksteady song by Dandy Livingstone.

The song later achieved broader success when in 1979, The Specials cover, titled "A Message to You, Rudy", reached Number 10 in the UK chart.

Veteran trombone player Rico Rodriguez played on both Dandy's and The Specials' versions.
