Big riddim ! "Black Cinderella" is one of the biggest success of Errol Dunkley. Just check the riddim to understand why...Later, Eric Donaldson, prince Pampidoo or the soul syndicate themself would be covering the tune or using the riddim, but that one was first issued on the Jimmy Radway's "fe me time". This label always offer good quality stuff, original riddims recorded with the best musicians at the best studios. Only a few singles were actually pressed by radway but he obtained a lot of hits with them. I have made this special mix with first the original version from mr Dunkley, then the DJ cut from Big Youth, one of his very early tune (maybe the first?), then "Cinderella in black" the melodica cut featuring a young Augustus Pablo, I roy's version that talk of one of the biggest plague that was over Jamaica "illeteracy", and then the instrumental version itself.
I've been reduced the whole set to ten minutes for not overdosing of it...I know that Vin Gordon did a tune for Jimmy Radway (zion youth) so i really wonder if he does the excellent trombone riff... Whatever it is, this "Black Cinderella" riddim is crucial ! And don't forget that if you enjoy it, just do like me and BUY it !
