The Unity label. Part 3

UN551-1 Little Freddy – Why Did My Little Girl Cry
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/whydidmylittlegirlcry.mp3]
UN551-2 Peter Austin – Change Partners
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/changepartners.mp3]

Little Freddy is Freddy McGregor. Why Did My Little Girl Cry was originally recorded by The Tams circa 1963. Change Partners is a cover of Patti Page’s Changing Partners.

UN552-1 John Holt – Walking Along
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/walkingalong.mp3]
UN552-2 Bunny Lee All Stars – Ware Fare (actually Warfare)
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/warfare.mp3]
Warfare takes the rhythm track of Hook Up (UN533A), itself a version of Slim Smith’s Everybody Needs Love and adds a spoken intro, sound effects and deejay chat, possibly by Count Machuki. This is apparently a Randy’s production and not Bunny Lee’s as the artist credit would suggest.

UN553-1 Ken Parker – When You Were Mine
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/whenyouweremine.mp3]
UN553-2 The Clarendonians – The Angles
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/theangels.mp3]
The Clarendonians were of course singing about angels and not angles! The Angels Listened In, to give it it’s full title, was originally performed by American Doo Wop group The Crests and was a significant hit for them in 1959.

UN554-1 Errol Dunkley – My Special Prayer
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/myspecialprayer.mp3]
UN554-2 Errol Dunkley – Never Hurt The One You Love
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/neverhurttheoneyoulove.mp3]

My Special Prayer is a Bunny Lee production and was issued on a blank in Jamaica (with Get In The Groove by Jeff Barnes on the flip). Never Hurt… is probably a Bunny Lee production too.

UN555-1 The Soul Mates – Ten Cent
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/tencent.mp3]
UN555-2 Doreen Schaffer – Stay With Me Forever
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/staywithmeforever.mp3]
The Soul Mates were apparently the Pioneers.

UN556-1 John Holt – Gonna Give Her All The Love

UN556-2 Busty Brown – Nobody But You

UN560-2 Max Romeo – Feel It
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/feelit.mp3]

UN561-1 Little John – No Love
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/nolove.mp3]
UN561-2 Little John – A Little Tear
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/alittletear.mp3]
Two cuts by John Holt for Bunny Lee. No Love is on the same rhythm as the Wailers’ Mr Chatterbox.
A Little Tear was also issued on Jackpot by Trojan and is on the same rhythm as Stranger Cole’s Life Can Be Beautiful, released on Unity UN514B. There was a second cut on this rhythm by John Holt released in Jamaica only called I’ll Be Yours.

Slip Up is a sax version of Slim Smith’s Slip Away (UN520A). On Broadway was another big rhythm for Bunny Lee and featured on several releases on Unity including a first vocal cut by Slim Smith (UN510B), two different instrumental cuts (UN505A and UN509A) and a deejay version by Jeff Barnes and U Roy (UN568B).

UN562-1 Bob Marley And The Wailers – Duppy Conquerer
UN562-2 The Upsetters – Justice
This release seems to be a myth. It probably doesn’t exist but even if it does it must have been on a blank only and in very limited quantities.

UN572-2 Max Romeo – Version
[audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/rentcrisisversion.mp3]
Rent Crisis came out approximately three years after the previous release, Macabee Version. The revival of the Unity label in the 70’s was consistent with other Pama labels that were being started up again but as was often the case the revival was short lived.

UN573-1 Dirty Harry – Big Haire [audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/bighaire.mp3]
UN573-2 Young Doug – Skank In Skank [audio:http://www.dancecrasher.co.uk/pama/unity/skankinskank.mp3] The last release on Unity. Two young white guys from Brixton who are into reggae hear Judge Dread and think they can do better. The B side artist is a typo and should have been Young Dude. Young Dude AKA Steve Rice is currently resident in Bristol and operating the Downbeat Melody Sound System. Big Haire took the rhythm from the Lee Perry produced Ginal Ship by Max Romeo. Max used the rhythm a couple more times under the name Johnny Studd on a Truth label double sider: Man In Your Life and Labour Wrong.
