About Michigan & Smiley:
Michigan and Smiley were a Jamaican singing combo of the late seventies first wave of dancehall music, consisting of Papa Michigan (born Anthony Fairclough) and General Smiley (born Erroll Bennett). They first recorded at Clement "Coxsone" Dodd’s famous Studio One, pressing their first number one hit, "Rub a Dub Style", which featured their innovative call and response style vocals overdubbed on the classic Studio One rhythm, "Vanity". Their next single, perhaps a larger hit, "Nice Up the Dance" was a version of the quintessential Studio 1 rhythm, "Real Rock". These singles, with four other tracks, also versions of classic Studio One rhythms, were released as their first LP, Nice Up the Dance. The names of these two singles were quickly incorporated into the lexicon of dancehall phraseology.
