1970 Skinhead Reggae in near perfect condition.

A stalwart of Jamaican music Lloyd Tyrell, writer, singer, producer. During 1968 thru 1971 his recording output was huge. A "a tour de force" during the "skinhead" Reggae boom of 1969 / 1970. Before you today are two of his finest compositions on one disc.

Shimmering with inspiring dance rhythms and enticing moans, groans, "Cockney" chants littered with innuendos peppering that infectious arrangement.

Flip it over "Shang I" provides the dancefloor with another fabulous piano led instrumental, this time no gimmicks, no nonsense. Underlining Lloyd Charmers composing talents has he constructs an addictive instrumental that builds up into a rousing finish..

TUNE!! which ever side you drop the arm on.
