There are probably a few Reggae covers. Here's one: Derrick Morgan - My Ding A Ling:

Not a classic (IMHO).

Don Covay - Memphis:

Love this version!

First I've heard Shocked A man who could write great songs and play a mean guitar (just like ringin' a bell). RIP Crying or Very Sad

Rock'n'roll = Chuck Berry.

Perhaps one of the most influential artists of his day, shaping (maybe even defining) R'n'R.

The first record I ever bought (well, I bought two records on that day in June 1964 with an EMI record token I'd been given for my birthday)

Top footage Pete, thanks.

JBG is one of those Reggae tunes on/in which a Rock guitar works and adds to the tune, IMHO Cool

Just for completeness, there was another version by Laxton Ford. No better either!
