Studio One SOLP 0136 (c.1981)
matrix: SOLP 0136

Darling I Need Your Loving; On The Beach; Wear You To The Ball; Have You Ever Been In Love; Change Your Style // Satisfaction; Happy Go Lucky Girl; I'll Be Lonely; Can't Get You Off My Mind; Build Your Dreams Together

Reissue/remix of the somewhat more attractively sleeved JOHN HOLT - THE PARAGONS & FRIENDS, released the 1970s. The 'friends' in question are Leroy Sibbles and The Heptones.

A similar selection was also released in the UK on the Melodisc label as JOHN HOLT & FRIENDS, where On The Beach is replaced by Depth Of Love.

CD reissue with five extra tracks, Play Play Girl, Since I Fell For You, Wasted Days Wasted Nights, Yesterday and Walk Walk. The extra tracks don't add much to the original vinyl release and are somewhat blighted by dubious sound quality.
