Original Jamaican issue in UP (Uniprint) sleeve. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

Probably issued after Delroy Wilson had left Studio One to found the W&C label with Stranger Cole (in 1968), this album collects together 12 titles recorded at the Brentford Road studio and released as singles in Jamaica and the UK in the late 1960s. The catalogue number would suggest that the album was originally intended to be released in the UK as part of the esteemed 'Blue Coxsone' series (but which terminated with CSL 8018).
