Information

Both sides of this double A side date from the late sixties. 'This Life Makes Me Wonder' is a soulful tour de force from Delroy Wilson, one of Jamaica's greatest ever singers, and its profound lyrics are set to a breathless, uptempo rhythm. George Dekker's 'Foey Man' is another underground classic properly re-mastered here by Kevin Metcalfe one of the best mastering engineers on the planet. Serious business.

Another Scorcher!

Mistah Brown, Jun 27, 2009
Pure quality! Two killer sides and yet another scorcher from probably the finest Jamaican re-issue label we have! Many would be trying to get £20+ for product of this standard too. Treasure them!

This re-issue makes me wonder

This is how it should be done, A1 quality music given an A1 quality re-press on heavy, heavy vinyl with sparkling sound. Thanks, Pressure Sounds, job well done.

Delroy's 'This Life' is, for me, what Jamaican music is all about. The Voice of the People.

    Storming big band ska from Granville Williams with 'Wailin'. 'Old McDonald' is actually excellent as well.

  • Eddie Perkins & Patsy - Take These Chain From My HeartEddie Perkins & PatsyTake These Chain From My Heart

    On the A side 'Take these chains from my heart' has more than a nod to the Hank Williams classic of the same name. Has a lovely harmonica half way through.
    'I Am Blue' on the flipside is pretty good.

  • Freddie McGregor - Bobby BabylonFreddie McGregorBobby Babylon

    Freddie McGregors classic Studio One set. Re-pressed in Jamaica at Studio One with the original stampers. Sleeve is also a re-print from the original so it has the characteristics of A Jamaican sleeve. Its new but looks slightly worn in places.

  • The Cables - What kind of worldThe CablesWhat kind of world

    The Cables led by Keble Drummond at their Studio One best. Great album. Recently repressed in Jamaica by Studio one. The sleeves have also been made in Jamaican so has some slight wear evident around the edges of the sleeve. Although it does say on the back sleeve that it was made in the UK!! Check the sound clips for sound quality before you buy. Overall its pretty good in terms of sound.
