I Like Gold





















First reggae re-release of the new year alert. One would be excused for thinking the venerable Pressure Sounds label would be scraping the bottom of the roots barrel by now, but the soulful Meet The People surely deserves a second chance. Released back in '78 on Jamaican soil only, so quite rare, it was recorded at the famous studios of Joe Gibbs, whose trusted engineer Errol Thompson manned the mixing desk.

Not the onettes but the lovely Bobbettes. Loved Mr Lee ever since I caught Stand By Me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuZQMuzf_oE
