Soul Brothers - James Bond Girl / The Summertair Girls - My Heart Cries Out (Studio One - 7" Vinyl)

by Dub Store Records

about

Another classic killer ska from the short-lived Soul Brothers. As of the original on the other side comes a sweet female lovers vocal from a night before the Rocksteady era.

Succeeding the authentic ska from the legendary Skatalites then evolving it to the sound of Rocksteady, a fluid session band of Studio One, the Soul Brothers bring another classic instrumental ska tune. You can almost smell the perfume of the Rocksteady era at its best, and here comes a cool and cute lovers tune from Kingston on the other side.

When the Soul Brothers were active after the Skatalites, they have certainly lost the thrill of solo performances, though this might have been that the Skatalites were just too great.. Recorded from the master tape itself, this take contains slightly different solos compared to the original single.
