The last 30 of the top 100 Rocksteady tunes will be featured as individual posts on this blog.
My Number One – The Paragons (Paragons Production)
Back at number 48 in the list was Memories By The Score by the Paragons. My Number One was on the flip side of this on it’s original release on Supertone, and in the UK on Island. For my money it’s an even better tune with a great flow to the lyrics and of course a wonderful lead by John Holt…how can two tunes back to back be so great? There was only one other issue on Supertone, this was another stunning double sider; Man Next Door/Left With A Broken Heart, it’s a shame the Paragons didn’t release more independent productions in the late 1960’s.
My Number One is on the Westside CD; John Holt – Memories By The Score.
