Following on from the unprecedented success of Shaggy's version of the Folks Brothers' "Oh Carolina", he recorded "Slow Type Of Death" over Brian And Tony Gold's remake of the hit with King Jammy.
His hit was featured on the one-rhythm Carolina My Darling, along with two other cuts from the Captain, "Teck A Man Woman" and the similar "Wok A Man Woman".
