I’m returning to an all-time classic today in the shape of Shorty Long’s “Here Comes The Judge”. Released on the Soul label (which was part of Motown) in 1968 this record was one of a number of “Judge” tracks cut around the same time. The first of these came from comedy singer Pigmeat Markham also in ’68, although today’s “version” is different, it was undoubtedly inspired by Markham’s “original”.
I’ve got a number of these different “versions” by various artists but I still have a fondness for Shorty’s version as it was the first one I heard and although somewhat overplayed now, it’s still just a fun, great danceable record. I hope you enjoy the track and it brings back a few memories for you (like it did for me)
