LIVE LOVING1
Sugar Minott (1977)

Studio One PSOL 001
matrix: PSOL 001

Jahovia; Hang On Natty (Get In The Groove); Change Your Ways (What Kind Of World); Give A Hand (Give Give Love); Come On Home (Queen Of The Minstrel) // A House Is Not A Home; Live Loving (Going Home) ; Love Gonna Pack Up; Jah Almighty (True Experience); Jah Jah Lead Us (Mr Bassie)

Original Jamaican issue. There are two different mixes of this album; unfortunately, both have the same matrix number. The Jamaican issue is the cleaner and brighter of the two mixes. Sleeve printed by Speed-O-Graphic Printers Ltd., Jamaica.

The first of the Studio One 'do-over' albums, and generally recognised to be the first 'dancehall' album. Sugar Minott was allowed his pick of rhythms from the Brentford Road vaults - and he certainly picked some of the best. One of the classic Studio One albums - worthy of a place in anyone's collection.

liveloving2label

A House Is Not A Home; Live Loving (Going Home); Love Gonna Pack Up; Jah Almighty (True Experience); Jah Jah Lead Us (Mr Bassie); Jahovia // Hang On Natty (Get In The Groove), Change Your Ways (What Kind Of World); Give A Hand (Give Give Love); Come On Home (Queen Of The Minstrel); Jah A Love You; Wrong Doers (Love Me Girl); Jah Children (Satta A Massa Gana)

Studio One reissue in facsimile sleeve with three extra tracks, Jah A Love You, Wrong Doers (from MORE SUGAR) and Jah Children (unique to this release). Clean pressing, but sound quality is a little inconsistent on some tracks (as on the Peckings mix) - however, this still remains one of the 'must-have' Studio One albums.
