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!

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.

  • The Nickel and Penny labels  - Eccentric SoulThe Nickel and Penny labels Eccentric Soul

    Nickel and Penny are twin sides of the same eccentric coin, and in the ’60s and ’70s that coin was being flipped by Chicago’s #1 Dusties DJ Richard Pegue. When he wasn’t busy as a mobile DJ, a jingles writer, or an enduring on-air personality at WVON, Pegue could be found in the studio working out the epic songs swirling around in his head.
