Reggae Treasure

DSC03092

This 1981 record from Upper Class Records could’ve been a perfectly respectable collection of tunes by a bunch of 2nd division reggae acts from the previous decade, including Bunny Maloney, The Marvels, Maria Mudie and The Diversions (who turn in a fine rendition of that timeless classic ‘Fattie Bum Bum’), but

In their infinite wisdom, the compilors saw fit to include not one, not two, but FOUR songs by hideous studio-concocted white boy one-hit-wonders Typically Tropical.

And of course side 1, track 1 is bloody ‘Barbados’.
