Yellow Bird; A Little More Oil; The Big Bamboo; Sammy Dead; Blood-Shot Eyes; Marian // Jamaica Lullaby; Hold Him Joe; Day "O"; Woman Smarter; Monkey; Jamaica

Original Jamaican issue, recorded at Studio One and pressed at WIRL.

The Hiltonairs second album. Two singers share vocal duties, one of whom is reputed to be Lord Tanamo (according to the Hiltonairs entry at the always informative Mento Music site). The cover was printed by Jamaica Times (Press) Ltd., and designed by J. West. Like several other releases from this time it was first printed onto white paper before being stuck onto a recycled sleeve. On the copy illustrated the original cover (THE MOST OF MILLIE, a WIRL production dating from 1964) is still just visible beneath the sleeve notes. ((Click to enlarge.))
