The legendary Coxsone Sound dubplate — a gorgeous close-harmony roots enchanter — voiced and mixed by King Tubby for Prince Jazzbo’s Ujama imprint. Bim!

The Greenwich Farm and Trenchtown youth return ineffably to the Conquering Lion rhythm for their own label, with a much fuller sound than the Ujamas. Fab.

Gotta be the Sound Dimension — Mittoo, Vin Gordon on deadly form — behind the sublime harmonizing. Sir D moves over for Sir C,  who ups the guitar and vocals, keeping things more clean and tidy than usual.

Sweetly formal, early-seventies doowop-reggae-soul, with lovely harmonies and organ, backed with a shark-attack rootical deejay cut in Amharic.

Nice gospelized harmonies… with a touch of The Lecture to the flip-side sufferers.
