    Why Is there a pic of dennis brown on the front cover and the name marcia griffiths onthe sleeve when neither appears to feature on the album? Is this some sort of tribute to coxsone’s talent for misinformation on his album covers? LOL.

  • Prince Andrew

    They must have been on ebay a lot to come up with this selection. No complaints here about the selection, looks good.

  • muzzer

    Agreed, very good selection.Rodigan told a story on Sunday on Kiss about going down into a basement of “Brad’s” in New York with a torch hunting for the Prince Lincoln tune, such was its rarity.

    The Marcia Griffiths mistake is more easily understood as in the liner notes it states that the Rita Marley tune included was mis-credited to Marcia Griffiths on some of the original 7″ labels but the D Brown has me wondering. Maybe some ‘hurry come up’ layout person thought it was Johnny Osbourne.
