Rare 1968 British Nu Beat NB 021 blank with handwritten credits.

168 Jamaican recording for Blondel Calneck's Caltone label, who promoted Devon Russell to head up The Tartans crediting on the label.

Top side is an invitation to dance "Reggae Reggae" Devon's mellow lead relentlessly supported by The Tartans choruses. with references to "Reggae" pronounced at every opportunity. Crafting a strong dance tune, in time fir the Skinhead culture to hoojk into.

The flipside is every note as good, if not better. As male harmony voices mingle reminiscing about "school days" that morph into a wave of distant memories of "Making Love". Dance rhythms flow and you soon realize why this is such a sought after disc.

Two great sides, seldom coming to market.
