LIVE & LEARN 7" 45 RPM
BE-028 - JUNIOR MURVIN - SUPER POWERS
BE-029 - DON CARLOS - NO TROUBLE THIS
BE-030 - JUNIOR REID - DON'T STRAY
Three more killer shots from Delroy Wright's Live & Learn label. All three were released as 7"s only in Jamaica, and like many Live & Learn JA singles, had small pressings and then vanished for good. Like all our favorite Live & Learn stuff, these exemplify the awesome "live digital" sound of mid '80s reggae that we love so much, which was the order of the day at studios like Channel 1, Music Mountain and Dynamic Sounds circa 1984. "Super Powers" is one of our favorite rhythms of this era, with awesome keyboard sounds and Murvin's perfect falsetto vocals. "No Trouble This" is classic Don Carlos, with great synthesizer sounds and syndrums. Lastly, "Don't Stray" is a lesser known cut from Junior Reid during his classic and well-loved '80s period, but only because it's so tough to find. Reid was at the top of his game from '80 to '85 and this one is no exception.
