Sharon Little - Don't Mash Up Creation
Big tune from Sharon Little, originally out in 1981, hard to find for years, and now finally back in press again (once more - now via Tek 2 Productions, on a 7")
Proper nice tune this. Subtle restraint on the rhythm, and on the smooth vocal by Sharon Little, who has only a few tracks to her name since she made her debut with this tune on 1 Love in '81 - although she did, after a long gap with no releases, come back and re-record the vocal in 2010 (undoubtedly after many years of Shaka playing the original cut on his sound), on the much sought after 'Mash Up Creation' along with dub version from Jah Shaka's son Young Warrior, on Jah Shaka's label.
Even though we'd wager that this original recording is far nicer, it goes to show how this track has resonated with the roots scene over the years.
It also seems to be one of those tracks that keeps popping up on youtube algorithms, but we won't let that distract us from the original vibe of this track, and we still think it comes across much more sincere when playing on the record.
A side, you get the big vocal cut, and on the B side, the rhythm gets fixed up dub style.
Big, big piece, this!
