The "Housewive's Choice" couple married in vocal harmony again; Derrick Morgan & Millicent Todd or is it?

Apparently George Dekker's ability to deliver a searing falsetto, enabled him to be invited to impersonate Millicent Todd, I'm was not convinced, but stranger things have occurred especially within the flexible boundaries of Jamaican music. Then OI locate the Jamaican original 1968 credited to Derrick & George backed by by Lynn Tait and The Jets

Flipside, as born out by later reissues, should be credited to The Inventors and not Derrick Morgan. All very complicated, coming about because, with no conscience at all, the Palmer Brothers thought sales would go little better if they credited the to a "Known" duo.

None of this shadowy title manipulation, in any way detracts from the fact this elusive disc gives up two killer tunes, in crisp clean seldom encountered mint minus condition.

Do not pass by...
