    Hey Kaat, the internet speaks of 1973 and my copy, feel free to download and check the backsleeve, speaks of 1976. So who am I to change that ..?

    Thank you so much for posting this edition.

    I agree with your policy of identifying the specific release, because there can be differences in the mastering, pressing, track order, etc. from one to another.

    As an aside, the “captcha” key for this message was “iredfro” — a Jah Manifestation, mon? 8^)

    Used to have this album a long time ago, always a favourite, especially Kentucky Skank, recently bought “”Essential Madness from the Scratch Files” – Lee Perry The Upsetter”(not a bad album), which has Kentucky Skank as one of the tracks, seems to be a different version, have downloaded this to check for sure.
    Many thanks too for your brilliant site, so many offerings from the African diaspora, a real listening pleasure/treat, very greatly appreciated.
