Two truly excellent reggae versions of different soul songs.

I do find it hard to "see" past Sister Sledge's EASIER TO LOVE (Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards at the height of their powers then)

...and I really like Sylvia Tella's SPELL - top drawer Lovers tune, although I don't know (or can't place) the Soul original - please enlighten, Colin Cool

Joe, the original version of the song 'Spell' was done by Blue Magic.

Aha! Thanks Colin - I don't have much Blue Magic...in the main, a little too sweet for my ears.

My tune of the day: No Sound Like We - Johnny Osbourne

HMV have the Jammy$ Selectors Choice Vol.1 4CD for 7.99 so I finally picked it up [only 6 or 7 years late!]. Already have most of it elsewhere, but nice to have in one place. And cheap!

One I failed to get hold of...might drop in to my local branch (Staines-upon-Thames) and check

One of the many highlights, off the "Youths Boogie" compendium, from Mike Atherton:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdDMejn9N8Q
Downbeats

Clearly, this isn't from JA, nor is it Reggae. But, it does feature Jamaicans, doing the singing, and playing bit! Very Happy

FWIW, Atherton wasn't able to tell us, who the Downbeats were, which is a shame, as this is truly, a top ranking song!

A shame, they didn't include the flip, on the set! It's a stonker!

A firm favourite -for years, it seems- out in Los Angeles. Specifically, with the Latino/La Raza car clubs, in/around East Los Angeles. There weren't many do's, where this didn't get aired, at least once. Sometimes, several times, throughout the day. Smile

I'm 50/50. It'd depend on my mood, as to which flip, was the better, for the moment. Smile
