NEAR TO YOU * YVONNE HARRISON * CALTONE 116 * UK
This B side (the other side is by Claudette Thomas) a self penned cut, is one of three sides Yvonne Harrison had issued in the UK on the Caltone label. Female vocalists represent only a small fraction of the vast output of the Jamaican music industry from this period. I can't help thinking that it would make an interesting study to compare the amount of American female vocalists records that were popular with radio audiences and dancers attending the sound systems.
