Irresistible Isaac Hayes homage, both sides.

Fine version of The Stylistics’ smash.

Wicked little minor-key organ instrumental, with a killer intro and rare toasting by Ramon The Mexican — resident deejay at Harriott’s Musical Chariot Sound System — who later changed his name to Ambelique.

A cover of the Gene Chandler.

The Crown Prince’s first-ever single, his own song, from around 1970 — backed with a tight and funky spaghetti instrumental from The Crystalites.

Sweet early Lovers from the part-time Louis Armstrong impersonator also favoured by Lee Perry — backed with a fine, soulful, previously unreleased cut by Jackie Bernard’s Kingstonians.

Excellent, sombre version of The Temptations’ civil rights smash; and another top example of the label’s trademark ‘funky soul’ on the flip, with wah-wah, move-on-up harmonizing and roots vision.

Tasty, brilliantly-arranged, minor-chord instrumental of Tonight led by the saxophone of Cannonball ‘Money Generator’ Bryan; with a secret-weapon piano-lick on the flip.

Aka Junior Soul, in 1969.

Laid-back rocksteady soul from Noel, out of the Chosen Few — coupled with a fun Ike Bennett organ workout.

With a nice Temptations.

Aka Junior Soul. Brawny, get-onboard rocksteady, with nyabinghi drumming throughout — including a tasty break. A first sighting of Solomon, from Police And Thieves.
