Classic Rock Steady in remarkable condition.

"Ride Your Donkey " was a such a popular "Blues Party" play in the late 60's, it is really rare to encounter an unblemished copy.

After all the first thing you did before going to the party was to write your name on the label or even both labels. So there was a better chance of it coming home with you. Second thing you did, was remove the sleeve if I still had one, then stacked it onto the Dansette Record Player. Waiting until it's turn in the 8 became. Danced to it and then waited for the next 8 choices to be stacked on the spindle. The first 8 were thrown on the carpet and this process would continue all night. Sleeveless records all over the floor, shuffle and reshuffled until the early hours and home you went with your scratched up favourite singles, never giving condition a second thought.

No wonder the opportunity of finding a near mint 60's Reggae 45 is one of the hardest challenges whilst collecting SKA/Rock Steady singles.

They were made to party with and that's exactly what happened. Today mist Reggae 45 collectors expect defaced or graffiti plagued labels, push-out centres removed and multi-scarred playing surfaces.

This listing is aimed at the discerning collector / DJ who strives for the rare conditions..

This classic is in rare condition. Check out the glowing condition report.

Two crisp clean, like new labels. Four prong push-out centre intact. Forensic vinyl inspection reveals only minuscule sleeve storage hairlines under direct light. STill housed in "glossy" finish wavy-top birth sleeve. Of course it plays perfect!
