MUST I BE LONELY * THE MAGPIES * DOCTOR BIRD 1129 * UK
One of those achingly sad and mournful songs from this unknown group or duo, with some well sung harmonies and sweet guitar make this a choice Rock Steady cut. On the original WIRL release JA the production credits go to The Magpies, who could well be, according to the writing credits Desmond Baker and Len Powell, on the A side Lulu (a Calypso song) the group are led by female singer Little Audrey.
Desmond Baker (if it is the same man) is more well known for his inclusion on the Clarendonians hit Rude Boy Gone To Jail his only recording for Coxsone Dodd.
