TALKING LOVE * THE PARAGONS * ISLAND 3067 * UK
Backed by Lyn Taitt and The Jets John Holt leads The Paragons on this romantic Rock Steady cut; it wasp produced by Kenneth Lloyd Khouri, and released on his Merritone label JA.
Ken Khouri's part in the music that has come to play such a major role in the popular music of the world cannot be overstated, as it was him who opened the first recording studio on the Island of Jamaica. Coxsone Dodd, who became a close friend of Khouri, said of him in an interesting insight to the early days of Dodd as a Dee Jay: "Me and him usually move closely, as I was one of the earliest persons to record at his studios. Through me and him use to move so good, people would say, I was his little black son. As a matter of fact he usually had the rights for labels such as Decca, Capital and Brunswick, and he would allow me to scratch off the labels which would give me a jump on the market ahead of competitors before he would release them,"
