The legendary 'Red and Whites', the holy grail (s) for the sixties reggae collector. The label was launched in 1967 by Island / B&C records, and ran for eighty five killer issues until 1969, most of which fall into the Rock Steady class, and every record a Coxsone Dodd production.
Africa, a B side, has The Gaylads, and possibly others, voicing jungle noises throughout the record that work incredibly well and bring to this already fine track an extra, transformative, dimension, which is just right as the song itself is on a 'Back-to-Africa' theme, a theme that was to become more pronounced as the decade ended.
