The a-side of this 1964 British press, carries a message to the youth of Jamaica, to "Cool Off" ad stop the gang fights. Derrick's rich vocal delivers his mantra at a calculated pace woven into subtle Ska arrangement. Simplistically fluid, as it creeps under your skin.

But the best side, we decided to lead with is "Take It Easy" is a meatier affair. Littered with innuendos woven into an uplifting horn-bolstered dance rhythms. Insistent shrill girl-group choruses decorate Derrick's enthusiasm.
Strong dance tune..

Condition is superb, you are unlikely to see a finer copy!
