Have been playing double CD called Punky Reggae Party great set, the liner notes is by one of the Stranglers he said a lot of there songs were influenced by Reggae but never came out as a reggae song Peaches was one of the tracks mentioned.

One of the standout tracks was Gregory Isaacs doing Hand Cuff (Hey Mr Babylon) at the end it starts into a dub mix but stops is there any CD with this in 12" form it sounds like it would be great to hear the full mix.

The Stranglers went into Reggae territory more than once.

Thanks, TH.

I an almost imagine PEACHES reworked as Reggae (e.g. a Black Ark do over), although I do think it works excellently as is ... song going through my head as I type.

Presumably this set? (which I don't have)

I have it on several CDs, but don't know if any are long versions (my database doesn't note any as being so).

Can't find a long version on YT either...sorry TH.
