1974 original in remarkable mint minus condition, plays clean as a whisker!

Huge demand triggered a reissue by "Dub Store" 6 years ago; but in front of you today is the original 1974 press displaying all its quirky typo and spelling errors.

Prolific writer, singer, producer Vivian "Yabby You" Jackson collaborates with bass player Aston "Family Man" Barrett to play out their like-minded talents on this addictive mid-tempo, filled with a cocktail of rich influences. Precise percussion, carries the flow prompted by constant bass-guitar pulses, whirling melodica, set up the perfect backdrop for the male vocal harmonies to bring forth their message of "loving your neighbours and you love yourself"

Easy-easy going and utterly addictive...

One for those of you who seek out their Jamaican 45s in the very finest possible condition, as you know, they rarely surface for sale.
