Cherry Red Records has via its new imprint Doctor Bird issued a scorching rarity with no less than 13 bonus cuts. The album is the compilation Dancing Down Orange Street, produced by Sonia Pottinger and originally put out in 1969.
A compilation like this helped to put the B in boss reggae and it comes with a truckload of skanking tracks, including Ken Boothe’s pulsating Live Good and Delano Stewart’s classic That’s Life.
This is the first ever reissue of this highly collectible album. A bit odd since it features both prominent singers and hit songs of the time. The original fetches prices that would empty many pockets. But no need saving up for one of those now.
