SOUL STEW * THE MEDIATORS * PUNCH 23 * UK
A Rupie Edwards production on this early Reggae instrumental, while the other side of the disc is a Lee Perry production. It is not unusual to find on many British releases of West Indian music not only different artists on ether side of a record (extremely uncommon with British Pop records) but to also have different productions on either side! Of course this isn't such a bad thing for the fan of Reggae music as the potential is to exclude those secondary B sides, by the same artist, for another A side. I don't know if this is the same Mediators, a male vocal group, who recorded for Coxsone around this time.
