Description


Description

One of Jamaica's great male vocalists, a former pupil of Clement Dodd, just a few years on, now advanced into writing and producing his own material. This 1972 British release in fine clean condition. A session written, arranged and produced by Keith Anderson (Bob Andy) himself is a testament to Bob Andy’s poetic-prowess as his poignant lyrics are served by an emotional vocal woven into a seamless early example of “Dub”

A really fabulous advisory song, sung by a Jamaican crooner of substance, now at the top of his game.

The flipside on this British release for some reason is NOT another version of "Life", from from it. But it a a killer cocktail remake of 4 of his previous compositions all considered 60's Reggae Bob Andy classics. 1. I've Got To Go Back Home 2. Let Them Say 3. Too Experienced 4. Games People Play (Joe South)

This flip medley I really like, his mature voice crystal clear and highly effective. Two great sides.

You do not need us to tell you this 45 is so challenging to acquire in clean condition.

A fine clean copy, revealing just a few hairlines under close scrutiny. Two complete labels, with a near invisible small black C the black background, being its only flaw.. .
