Description

One of those elusive GAS 45's that rarely comes to market.

1969 Skinhead Reggae from Hopeton Reid under one of his several aliases, guided by the creative Winston Riley. Between them they craft an unusually catchy dance groove, the deliberately simplistic arrangement is peppered with Hopeton's squeals, shouts and chants. Penny-whistle decoration, blends with saxophone, sweeping percussion brushes across the whole arrangement, winning your undivided attention. Ten addiction takes over, your hooked, soon requiringn another hit of Winston Ril;ey's off-the0wall-production.

Flip it over for cheeky but nice bit of plagiarism; Copying Ivy Joe Hunter & Mickey Stevenson's composition The Spinners hit with at Motown and The Gladiators wowed the Mods in the UK with the same year.
A strong version of The Spinners Motown classic, The Gladiators on Direction steer away from Reggae fir a starasigt Soul version.

The Sensation take on this great song, they credit themselves as being the writers, naughty but forgivable as "I'll Always Love You" is again given the respect it deserves, giving up a captivating version.

Two great sides, check out the sound file because the vinyl has a few marks.

Condition Report

Multiple light surface marks, occasional tick but the music wins through with no issues, listen to the exact sound-file lifted directly off this disc. . The a-side label has a "peer" off the centrepiece that we imagine has bubbled up and some point in it's life, leaving black paper backing in it's place. Flipside label is clean, no writing, stains, tears or sticker. All is as it should be.
