    Day after day, more people come to L.A. ....Shhhh, Don't you tell anybody, the whole place shaking away. Where can we go, when there's no San Francisco? Shhh, don't you tell anybody, the boats in Idaho. Do you know the SWIM? You'd better learn quick, Jim. Those who don't know the swim, better pray to HIM. (titman)

    It's listed here and on Wikipedia as a Reggae Song, but I remember it as a straight calypso. Of course I haven't actually heard the song since the summer of 1969, but I remembered enough of the lyrics to google it and find it here, so I think I have the beat right. I was surprised it was a rock group and not a calypsonian. Calypsos go back to the 1920s, and were sporadically recorded and played in New York as well as Trinidad. I remember seeing a Calypso singer as a guest on Dave Garraway's daytime TV show in the late 1950s. Reggae came out of Calypso in the late 60s, but has a slower and more insistant beat and is more like a rock song. Calypsos are written like standards, with a verse/chorus and often a minor-key release part as well. Think "Money is King" versus "Jammin'".

    This song was written as a response to the California earthquakes of the late 60's. And it is the FIRST reggae song that I ever remember hearing. I would LOVE to see this on a CD somewhere.
