Description


Description

rare and sought after Gussie Clarke production released on Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong label, instead of Clarke’s own Gussie & Puppy Records that the deadwax indicates.

One of Jamaica’s most prolific of artists, later coming a noteable producer himself, presents arguably his most wanted 45.

A soulful mid-pace dance groove, showcasing Leroy expressive style as his vocal floats along on an “easy going” Augustus Clarke production. Lyrical brilliance woven into a gentle but infectious dance rhythms.

Top tune!
