1964

I WILL BE GLAD * SHENLEY DUFFUS * RIO 41 * UK

Chenley Duffus a.k.a Shenley (or Shandly !!!) Duffus seems destined to become one of those forgotten vocalists, which is a shame because he cut some excellent tracks, but it looks like it's all getting too long ago for any new stars to be made from that period. I Will Be Glad is a good fast paced Ska vocal but what is really top is that after about two thirds of the song a very unexpected vocal chorus comes in and the whole thing goes into a different gear sounding all of a sudden like a Prince Buster Ska cut from the same period.
