Two feelgood dance recordings from this highly regarded group.

The Maytals combative vocal style on "Judgenment Day" works really well, on this saxophone peppered Cecil Campbell production. Leaving their tight harmonies aside, delivering a call & answer rapping mash-up. The session blooms, as the gathering jostle for position in friendly enthusiasm. Freddie "Toots" Hibbert's vocal never fails to impress, again he leads the pack magnificently only stepping aside for an impressive saxophone blasting through and a weaving clarinet.

The flipside "Goodbye Jane" is a furious tongue-twisting full group participation storm, with a persistent clarinet punctuating the vocals whilst keeping the rhythm intact.. an unusual delivery but highly addictive

Blue Beat 255 is a number in the series, that's proved quite elusive over the decades, our first copy for quiet some time... in this nice clean condition....

A valued 45 in this most collectable series.
