An utterly stunning copy - previously unplayed perfection - 1971 UK press.

A quirky journey into the highly addictive effect the Jamaican manipulation of the Trombone can have on you. Directed by "The Teacher" Herman Chin-Loy from his state-of-the-art Aquarius studio, but for some unknown reason "405" not receiving a Jamaican release as a 45. The flipside "Duck It Up " finding its way onto the flipside of Alton Ellis's "Arise Blackman" in Jamaica,

A hard record to acquire, as UK only, especially in spectacular condition.

Now listen to two fabulous instrumental attributed to Augustus Pablo with an uncredited master of the Trombone begging for you attention.
