After the success of the two Laurel Aitken previous singles backed by Mighty Megatons band, on which the Spanish band completes old unfinished masters from the legendary ‘HIgh Priest Of Reggae’, Liquidator Music releases now the third 7″.
On the A side is a cover from The Paragons ‘Only A Smile’ rock steady classic, an elegant interpretation by the genuine Godfather Of Ska from Jamaica who pays tribute to his beloved singer John Holt.
On the B side we can find ‘On The Plantation’, a Roots Rock Reggae killer tune. Laurel produced, along his career, some conscious numbers, even rastafari and panafricanist but, probably, this one is the most militant along his legacy.
Mighty Megatons has done a great job showing their versatility among the classic Jamaican sounds.
A must for any Reggae and Rocksteady collector. Not Exportable to Japan.
