Re-issue on CD from Burning Sounds 23 February 2018

1. First Sight Loving
2. Tease My Love
3. Beautiful Music
4. Workman Song
5. Love Jah So
6. Sweet Sweet Love
7. Death Angels
8. No Competition
9. Run Satan Out


Really good album from memory, just a shame it's not part of a 2fer. I have No Competition on Joe Gibbs 12" somewhere, must dig it out.

IIRC, at some point, this will get re-issued as a 2fer, by Burning Sounds......At least, I remember, some grumbles, about that scenario..... Wink

Maybe it should be mentioned that the title of the album is Love At First Sight. Wink

Here it is on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-First-Sight-Freddie-McGregor/dp/B0788YNVHV

This is one of the few Freddie albums I'm missing, so a welcome release.

Actually there was only one title where this was an issue, the initially announced 2fer was cancelled (I don't think it ever was on the market) along with two other titles, presuamably because the other album had some licensing problem, all the cancelled material were Roy Cousins productions, and only the one album (Cornell Campbell Sweet Baby) was released on it's own.

Aren't you guys exaggerating this a bit now?

Does anyone actually have a Meets The Gaylads With Sly And Robbie + Sweet Baby 2fer?

Ok! I was just trying to be fair and present a more balanced view.

Sometimes when complaints over something start on a forum things take on a life of their own and the facts are left behind. I think there was an issue made out of something that never actually happened, there never was both a 2fer and a stand alone release with the same album released, there were just listings on sites, and the confusion was only ever over one album (Sweet Baby).

I was being sarcastic, so of course, I was exaggerating. Wink

Which, is the reason, I was being, sarcastic. Wink

Cool! Cool

But I do agree that it would be nice if they used the 2fer format more, when appropriate. Some albums they have released on their own are very short, like the Ken Boothe Got To Get Away, which is only 30 mins., not much value for money, and even less so if you consider that the eight tracks you are getting are just based on three riddims.

On the subject of new BS releases they are also reissuing this old Burning Up sampler: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Burning-Up-Sounds-Sampler/dp/B077S8N1SQ

It's not a straight reissue, I guess they are simply using the tracks they have the license for and then add others to make an expanded approximation. Maybe some of the content (if it's indeed a "sampler of current and future rocksteady releases") points to what can be expected in the future?

Good-looking set that sampler - I wonder what the overlap is with both other releases and what I have in my collection already?
