GUNS OF NAVARONE * THE SKATALITES * ISLAND 168 * UK
Were the 'Pop' charts to be anything like representative Guns Of Navarone would have definitely made the top twenty best sellers of the day, it was immensely popular in the clubs and dance halls at the time. Judging by the amount of this issue that were to be found secondhand during the period from it's release and up to the 1990s, it must have been just about the best seller on the label. Released on Muzik City in Jamaica this cut takes its name from the 1961 action/adventure, war film of the same name, staring Gregory Peck. Back then the Gregory was also the place to put the Peckham.
