LONG LOST LOVE * RUPIE EDWARDS * CRAB 35 * UK
Producer and singer Rupie Edwards first recording was Guilty Convict in 1962 on the Smith's label, which was released on Blue Beat # 90 in the UK. Six years later found Rupie Edwards producing records for his own Success label with many of the new faces making a name for themselves with the early Reggae sound. The above cut has a lovely undulating organ sound, possibly by Winston Wright, alongside Rupie's ethereal vocals, nice.
