After a brief period as a trio, The Maytones became a duo of lead singer Vern Buckley and backing vocalist Gladstone 'Son' Grant. The pair were neighbors in May Pen, a rural market town, a background that deeply influenced their vocal style.In 1968 the group recorded a handful of singles, all self-produced by Buckley, credited to his name alone, and released mostly by the VB pre label. None was succesful, and Ranglin decided to step in as their manager and producer.
This LP compiles various 12" mixes recorded between 1976-1978 at Channel One & Joe Gibbs studio's. Backing tracks were laid by the G.G. All Stars and The Revolutionaries. 'Africa We Want To Go' was only issued as a 7''-release, but this LP includes another stronger take of the song with horns. 'Money Worries' was issued as a 12'' but including I-Roy as DJ. Instead of a DJ you can now enjoy of a wicked dub-version of the track which was never used as a 12''-release. All tracks have been remastered from the original analogue master tapes. The LP comes in a gatefold cover and includes very extensive liner notes and pictures. Enjoy!
