Description

One of the very elusive Trojan white and oranges, this end of 1969 Leslie Kong project rarely comes to market in any condition. But has an unblemished mint minus disc, this is one uncommon 45 indeed.

A finger-clicking keyboard dominated dancer, with the trio deliver feelgood slick harmony with moments inspired vocal injections, no matter which side yo drop the arm on.

Both recordings benefitting not only from Kong's instinctive feel for a hit, mixing instrumental partitions at just the correct moments but equally this trio seamless talent for rebounding off each others lead, vocally these three complimented each other perfectly, with seemingly effortless unison.

"There a Fine " was a smash hit in Jamaica but in the UK sold very little, lost in Trojan's avalanche material. One of Leslie Kong's most memorable before he died so young at the age of 37 a little over a year after this uplifting double was launch.

In this condition this 45 is a trophy..
