I AM GOING HOME * THE RIGHTEOUS FLAMES * FAB 17 * UK
Love the spelling 'Richus' on this issue, that's exactly me if it wasn't for spell checkers. The Richus Flames, lead by Winston Jarrett, were originally formed as Alton Ellis's backing group The Flames, and backed him on many releases for Duke Reid like Dance Crasher, and subsequently for a short spell with Coxsone Dodd, as on I Am Still In Love. Renamed The Righteous Flames the group recorded several songs for Prince Busters Olive Blossom label, the above was the first of those to be issued in the UK. After working with Prince Buster the group returned to Studio 1 where they recorded songs like You Don't Know.
