Quite an interesting development – the originals were all twelves, but this is a good way of getting the tune and the version out there. The five quid price tag suggests either that this stuff will only get bought by serious selectors and collectors (as with those recent Peckings sevens) or that the financial crisis means that the cost of vinyl is spiraling out of control.
I won’t be getting this because I already have the tune and version on the peerless “Watch How The People Dancing” compilation put out by Honest Jon’s. But I will be watching with interest to see if Unity:
a) Repress some other tunes not on the compilation
b) Maybe revoice the old riddims with new vocalists?
c) Maybe do some new riddims?
All of which are a mouth watering prospect.
Assuming it isn’t a bootleg, that is, in which case I take it all back 😉
