Pressure Sounds at it again, re-presenting the gems!
This time with a different sleeve reissue of their reissue from a couple years ago (of the original Chanan-Jah 12″ out in 1979) –

This certified jam, with that haunting, bittersweet ‘Strange Things’ vocal from Ronnie Davis, in deep, raw roots style – Phil Pratt on production.
There’s a great John Holt rocksteady version too… Worth seeking out (in fact, we’ll see if we can get that in too.. stay tuned) –
And there’s another 80’s dancehall cut with the same lyric too… I have a copy but can’t find it, and can’t remember the artist or title (just the exact tune in my head!) – feel free to email and enlighten our memory once more.

Anyway, point is – this is a great lyric and this version is great too.
Worth every penny just for the music, but thankfully it’s also served up lookin’ real nice, in typical Pressure Sounds style.
Great discomix style dub on this too.

Flip it, and we have Black Cinderalla, a real nice piece of late 70’s, early 80’s roots with a lot of US soul influence still to be heard there, and early, early signifiers of the dancehall sound to come,

Nice.
