DR. RING-A-DING * ROLAND AL & THE SOUL BROTHERS * DOCTOR BIRD 1023 * UK
This heavy Ska track starts of with the ringing of a phone bell, remember them? that sounds like it is in an empty metal water tank, then a woman's voice, also from inside the tank, answers (?) the phone with the immortal line "This is an emergency call for Dr. Ring Ding" Then, continuing with the subterranean feel, the low, slightly muffled growl of Roland Al's sax commences this excellent Ska. Dalke credits this Studio 1 production to King Stitt and Roland Alphonso.
