A re-cut of the Studio One song that was called 'Contemplating Mind' recorded by Barrington Spence for Mr Dodd. He re-cut this version for Phil Pratt in the early 70s. Phil Pratt's arrangement is less reliant on the keyboards of Jackie Mittoo and comes with a slower rhythm. The b side is 'Where your footsteps led'. Both sides are excellent soulful early 70s reggae.
An obscure Black Ark rarity that was produced by Phil Pratt at the Black Ark. Roy Graham was a singer friend of Phil Pratt' Phil and along with Bobby Kalphat came to a recording session where they were cutting tunes with singer Al Campbell. 'Why should you' has a strong Lee Perry influence both in the vocal style and in the production. Bobby Kalphat's rhythmic melodica stabs away alongside Roy Graham's vocals. A funky 45 that has never been re-pressed since its original small first run on the Sunshot label. Has a nice Black Ark version on the filpside. Comes in a handmade recycled and stamped Pressure sounds sleeve.
An excellent Delroy Wilson cover of the Marvin Gaye song 'Baby don't you do it'. Produced by Phil Pratt and originally released on the Sun Shot label. A difficult tune to find these days, never been re-pressed until now. Delroy Wilson sings over an incessant Phil Pratt rhythm with Bobby Kalphat keyboards to the front of the mix. Nice rhythmic flipside. An instrumental rather than a dub. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve. A winner.
Killer ska tune that leaps out of the speakers and flys around the room. Catch it while its available. Busty Brown on the flipside with 'Pick Up The Pieces.
Killer Ska 7 that has been unavailable for too long. You need it.
Superb Ronnie Nasralla produced ska. Top draw music and well done to Dub Store for getting this available again.
