ONLY A SMILE * THE PARAGONS * TREASURE ISLE * 7009 * GB
Both sides of this top class Treasure Isle disc were written by John Holt, who was lead vocalist with The Paragons from 1964, the group were originally made up of Garth "Tyrone" Evans, Bob Andy, Junior Menz, and Leroy Stamp. It was the group minus Menz, Stamp and Andy, that recorded these and other timeless Rock Steady classics for Duke Reid. The group eventually broke up as, after a dozen or so Jamaican No 1 hits they were still struggling for money!
