think there was a discussion about the BRA lable before (probably over The Blues Busters), and there's at least one more on BRA with 'C. Dodd' on the label...

Haim Kenig's got one for sale - he's on here, or you can contact him via www.longtallsimon.net. This is the same Studio One recording that was issued on Supreme in Jamaican and Island over here. There's also a nice version, by John Holt, on the same backing track on a 1970 Studio One album, but I can't remember which one offhand...

JOHN HOLT ALBUM WITH SAID TRACK

I was actually thinking about a compilation LP - it's either "Solid Gold" or "A Scorcha" - but I'd forgotten it was on here, too...

Was also on Ja. Supreme (dark blue label/sliver lettering), as were sereval of Ken's other early Studio 1, releases before Coxsone switched him to Studio 1 itself. I have one somewhere in the attic in something less than G- condition. In fact I have two or three other Ken's on Supreme. Time for a rummage in the crates, I think.

Superb? yes, unquestionably, but rocksteady? no, not quite. It's a bit too early to be classed as that, although it does come from that interesting period, which doesn't seem to have a 'name', when ska was slowing down and before Hopeton Lewis' "Take It Easy" (first real rocksteady record IMO) came out. Other great examples of this 'slow ska' era would have to include Delroy Wilosn's "Dancing Mood", the Paragons' "Happy Go Lucky Girl", Phyllis Dillon's "Don't Stay Away", Ken Boothe's "Train Is Coming", the Clarendonians' "Rudie Bam Bam", Peter Tosh's "I Am The Toughest", Alton Ellis' "Cry Tough", the Wailers' What Am I Supposed To Do" and probably a few hundred more that come to mind just as easily...

The Wailers' "I Need You" is, by the way, a cover of the Temptations' "Baby Baby I Need You" (other side of "Why You Wanna Make Me Blue". Lovely lead from Bunny Livingstone on that one, the great Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks sharing the same for the Tempts...

Sold that album last year, think it had a black cover with a picture of a tribesman on it, really poor compilation actually

Tone - I always call that period "rude boy", a hybrid between ska and rocksteady like you mention above e.g. The melodians - Lay It On
