There are a dozen nice sultry instrumentals on this LP, released in the early ‘70s, though as always with vintage reggae albums, that doesn’t necessarily indicate that all of the material was recorded then. Certainly it has the sound of the best rocksteady music, some of its trancier grooves hinting at the dub era. Bubbly organ riffs are heard throughout, of the sort that, with some tweaks, would be popularized in the U.S. by Timmy Thomas’ 1973 hit “Why Can’t We Live Together.”… by Richie Unterberger….~



Het was ergens in februari 1986, Barrington Levy trad op in Paradiso 
Amsterdam. Ik was 28 jaar oud en met twee goede vrienden trokken 
we naar Amsterdam om hem te zien. Het werd een memorabele avond. 
Een van mijn vrienden, G.J. Kamer had toen nog een eigen radioprogramma 
bij de KRO, ‘Demo’ genaamd. Hij had de opdracht meegekregen om Barrington 
te interviewen, dus na de show werden we in de Vip Bus gevraagd die voor de 
deur van Paradiso stond. Gerard deed zijn interview en toen hebben we nog 
wat met die jongens gerookt en wat foto ‘s genomen. Hier onder zie je er een 
paar van Barrington en Jackie Mittoo. Ze zwaaiden ons nog uit bij het afscheid, 
al met al een avond om nooit meer te vergeten..wat een aardige jongens.. 

It was somewhere in february 1986, Barrington Levy performed in Paradiso 
Amsterdam. I was 28 years of age and with two close friends went to see him. 
It became an evening to remember. One of my friends, G.J. Kamer still had his 
own show at KRO Radio in those days and brought a recorder to interview 
Barrington, so after the gig we were invited in the Vip Bus which was parked 
in front of Paradiso. Gerard did his interview and we stayed a while, smoking 
and taking some pictures. Below you’ll find some of them with Barrington and 
Jackie Mittoo. A memorable night all together, see how they 
waved us a happy goodbye…..~



Jackie Mittoo’s fifth and most popular album from 1972. Seminal reggae instrumentals with the famous Studio One heavy-bass sound….~
