The Uniques Slim Smith, Jimmy Riley and Lloyd Tyrell always deliver tight male harmony session.

When that distinctive Slim Smith vocal works its magic, on waves of Rock Steady dance pulses. Simplistic but oh so affective as he invites you to "Rock To This Beat". Relentless dance pulses flood through, scattered backing vocals cradle "Slim's" lead tones, constructing yet another memorable "Uniques" recording.

The flipside wrongly credited to Glen Adams is in fact Alva "Reggie" Lewis, who's understated vocal style fits so snugly into the bass-guitar rhythms. Simple is genius! it all works so well, with Reggie effortless stroll through the lyrics pulls you into his carefree attitude.

Two highly regarded sides, on this most-sought-after British imprint.
