count sticky / val bennett
rockfort psychedelion / val blows in
this 45 is in effect a double a-side release, both produced by lee perry.
count sticky's scat vocals on the a-side roll over a memphis style backing that was all the rage in kingston at the time these recordings were made. “what a sound” exclaims count sticky & he is right. rockfort was a particularly tough kingston neighbourhood. the idea of being on psychedelics there does not bare thinking about!!! the other side is a fantastic funky instrumental featuring the top session player val bennett & is a cut of 'django shoots first'. this has all the inventive perry sound injections that are on many of his best recordings.
