OK so here is the english version of this blog...Sorry for my poor english but i'm just a little french guy and you'll have to do with it anyway...I'm glad to know that at least everyone in the whole world will understand what i'm writing about all these records i post on my blog. Don't forget that the main purpose of it is to makes you discovering sounds that are rare or not digitally released , so please don't ask me to put some CD or new stuff from your favorite artist, it will be easier for you to find it somewhere else...
So here we go with that one, "night owl" on prince Tony Robinson's label highschool. This one is from 1972 and i guess one of his earliest production on this label. Sung by Lee & the clarendonians, i'm wondering who's Lee actually as it is known the clarendonians were Peter Austin & Ernest Wilson, sometimes with Young Freddie mcGregor. Ain't got no more informations about him, as this seems to be the unique single released under that name. Whoever he is it is clear here that we can distinctly hear 3 voices...(i think little Freddie stayed exclusivly at studio 1 after the duo leaved it, but maybe he's singing on that one...who knows?). Anyway, this tune is in a early one drop style though it would have been very easy to make it sound like an early reggae or a rocksteady. It got a nice skank and a great bubbling organ, i hope you'll like it! Funny to see that Dennis Alcapone's version "fine style" was made on the version of the original single...So there's 2 versions & 3 cuts...Economic!
