Rocksteady party bomb. First time out for the horns instrumental on the B.
Superb rocksteady album from 1967, beautifully reproduced with Japanese care and attention.
Top-notch rock-steady, sequel to Safe Travel. Bunny Lee and Phil Pratt productions for the Ken Lack imprint, with musical supervision by Tommy McCook, Lynn Taitt and Johnny Moore.
1965 JA Latin-Calypso-Jazz from the master-pianist, who led a twenty-piece hotel band from the age of seventeen, and released three albums on Studio One. Solid rhythm section, with conga and percussion.
