A spectacular copy of this highly elusive 1971 Reggae groove, benefiting from a uplifting Clement Coxsone Dodd production and Freddie's guaranteed emotionally soulful delivery.

A graduate from Prince Buster's team, working with other talent Jamaican producers like Duke Reid before finding a little better success, coming under the mentoring and writing skills of "Scorcher" C.S. Dodd. Both sides of this 1971 killer constructed by Clement himself, even though Freddie was well capable of writing quality tunes himself, with "Sweet You Sour You" validating that observation.

Listen to this gifted vocalist, again easing his way through this Hammond keyboard driven stroller, beautiful embellished by silky vocal group choruses. So cool, so in control of proceedings.

Another one of the 4 only releases Freddie had on this UK imprint, this example being in immaculate condition..

Most likely unplayed when we lifted the double soundfile.

Do not pass by, we are unlikely gonna listing an equally perfect copy any time soon.
