Again it's all about condition with this 1969 Sister Reggae deconstruction of Lionel Bart's classic composition.

This elusive 1969 British press is flawless, with an a-side that's best forgotten as, this novelty piece of Reggae really doesn't work at any level. "Doggy In The Window" was a disaster and never sold a b ean.

Leaving the unusual but worthy flipside for a Jamaican songbird to deliver. The former Skatalite lady "Monica Johnson" does such an excellent job with the seamlessly pleading voice.

This is a listing aimed at Reggae collector seeking 45's in tip-top condition, and this disc is certainly that. not a vinyl murmur to distract you from Doreen's oh so sweet voice.
