RELEASE DATE: Nov. 23rd, 2021 - no shipments before that date!
These two outstanding tracks were released separately on the Upsetter label in 1969: first “Come Into My Parlour” on TMX 202, followed by “Check Him Out on TMX 330.
LEE SCRATCH PERRY wrote and produced both songs.
“Come Into My Parlour” was also featured on the Trojan’s Tighten Up volume 2 LP that year also!
“Come Into My Parlour” has never been repressed since. It is impossible to find in good conditions and is in great demand.
“COME INTO MY PARLOUR” is a killer Reggay anthem adored by early Reggae fans, on par with the likes of “John Jones” or “Hold Down” previously released on Harlem Shuffle Records. Extremely popular, it has never been repressed since, it is impossible to find in good condition and is very much in demand. With its suggestive lyrics, bold organ, pulsing beat and lovely melody, it is easy to see why “Parlour” is still so much in favour 50 years after its release. Essential!
"Check Him Out" is a cheerful and infectious Reggay tune with wonderful harmonies from the group.
A marvelous track. Listening closely, it appears to be a musical advertisement giving directions to a record store in Kingston that Perry owned at the time!!!
It has never been repressed on 7” vinyl. It is a very much in demand song and a perfect B side for this killer double sider…
