Versatiles - Spread Your Bed / Worries A Yard - Crab  5

Versatiles

Spread Your Bed / Worries A Yard

Crab : 5 (45s)

The fifth release on this highly regarded UK Reggae label, and this group's most-wanted 45.

From the golden year of 1969, no matter which side you drop the arm on, a powerful rhythmic vocal-group dancer springs forth. Driven by energized vocals riding wave after wave of swirling Hammond pulses, broken up by strong bass guitar picks. Proper Skinhead Reggae, not once but two times over.

This is total Reggae dance, two all action grooves, insistent and relentless from the very first explosive notes. Vocally uplifting with harmonized chants supporting the lead voices. Just like all this group's other recordings, a superior example of the 1969 trend.

Flip it over for a classier dance pattern, a more considered rhythm, tighter harmonies, coat a mid-tempo arrangement that is not quite as frantic as the the a-side, but just as impressive, in fact will be preferred by many, over the more obvious dance qualities of the lead side.

Two great tunes on one elusive disc and so hard to find at this level of fine condition.

Leaving You Now / The Rolling Sea

CBS: 202579 DJ (45s)

Rare under-the-radar Brit-girl MOD psyche screamer!

A deceiving lazy guitar intro, meets a snarling harmonica driven MOD/Psyche R&B tinged MOD dancer from the desk of the prolific writer Mike Leander

We think its obscurity has obstructed the perceived value through the years. It bristles with angst; a searing harp, cradlers a harsh gravel-coated agitated girl delivery; that steps aside for a harmonica break that changes up a gear, smashed by an piano assault that turns the break into an avalanche of single-mindedness.

Powerful, positive and decidedly angry song, delivered by such a convincing vocal from this solitary 45 artist, we know little order nothing about.

A top-notch obscurity with huge potential for notoriety and investment.
