Description

Another SKA classic so hard to acquire in tip-top condition. This 1965 British copy has two clean labels, 4 prong centre intact, impeccable full gloss near mint vinyl.

Rare condition indeed.

This Duke Reid Treasure Isle Jamaican project was originally titled as "I Want My Cock". An outrageously bawdy song, that obviously required a label adjustment for UK release. R&B Records retitled it simply as "Woman" but did not censor the lyrics. Every "cock" reference and innuendo left in place, with Owen and Leon Silvera wallowing in its downright cheekiness and uplifting rhythms get the whole studio enthusiastically singing "I Want My Cock" partitioned by some accomplished uplifting instrumental breaks. A mood changing, bedazzling jam..

With the bonus of the flipside presenting that "made in heaven" combination of Baba Brooks band and the rich silky Trombone manipulation of the great Don Drummond "Dr. Decker", making for an utterly magnificent instrumental incorporating some of the finest musicianship the island of Jamaica has to offer.

Two killer sides, entertaining, joyous and dance-inducing brilliance flood your space.
