Jamaican roots reggae producer and keyboardist Augustus Pablo played the melodica on this track. Pablo, who died in 1999, was one of the leading exponents of the instrument and is believed to be the first to use it within a popular music setting. The melodica is a cross between the harmonica and the accordion with a musical keyboard, which is played by blowing air through a mouthpiece. Among other songs that feature the melodica are "And We Danced
" by The Hooters and "Do It Again
" by Steely Dan.
