THE MAD LADS + ALTON ELLIS - Losing you + tumbling tears (1969 Studio 1)

"Losing you" is one of the few tunes the legendary mad lads ever recorded. Famous with their massive "ten to one" studio 1 hit song, lead singer was the ever green Ricky Grant. The 1st version i've ever heard of that song was by the heptones, a good one produced by Niney in 1978 sung by Earl Morgan. Originaly, "i can't get over losing you" come from the great american band The delphonics, recorded one year earlier than the mad lads in 1968, as the flip side of their big tune "la la means i love you", that one being covered by jamaican superstar Alton Ellis...that we will hear too with "tumbling tears" wich i think he personally wrote. Great studio 1 stuff, tough there's 3 differents version of "losing you" included in one mix (LOL). If both tunes were recorded in 1969 with home band sound dimension, this 12" was remixed and issued in 1977, as the reverb & delay can recall...
