Description

Boss Reggae, the golden Skinhead year of '69.

SPECTACULAR MINT minus condition!

Very elusive and highly sought after 1969 Skinhead Reggae! in in clean condition..

George Agard & Glen Adams and team are guided by the legendary Joe Gibbs inside his recently built, about to become world-famous studios, situated on Retirement Crescent, Kingston, Jamaica. Far from thinking about retirement Joe spring-boarded from a successful electrics and record shop owner, into becoming one of Jamaica's most iconic producers.

Here is a fabulous example from the golden age of 1969 Skinhead dance Reggae. Giving up a whirling Hammond musical landscape, decorated with soaring harmony group vocals, perfectly peppered with well timed chants and incantation... it charismatic characteristics making it one of the most wanted, from that much-loved moment in time - 1969. When Reggae was universally accepted as the dance-sound of the day, throughout the United Kingdom. "Them A Laugh And A Ki Ki" was never a chart hit like some of those addictive dance productions and is still today a darn difficult 45 to secure.

nice copy!
