OLDIES BUT GOODIES VOL.2
Various Artists (c.1969)

Studio One GW 0003
matrix: FCD 2277

There's Always Sunshine (Blues Busters); I Know It All (Alton & Eddie); Worried Over You (Keith & Enid); Baby Come On Home (Tony Gregory); Sugar Plum (Owen & Millie); The End (Lord Creator) // Ska-Ba (Skatalites); Sho Be Do (Clarendonians); Tear Up (Roland Alphonso); There Is Reward (Higgs & Wilson); One Love (Wailers); You're No Good (Jackie Opel)

Original Jamaican issue in United Printers sleeve.

Another fine collection of Studio One singles recorded between 1960 and 1966. The earliest track (Worried Over You) was actually a Smith's production, originally released on the Hero label in Jamaica and on the Blue Beat label in the UK. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

There's Always Sunshine (Blues Busters); I Know It All (Alton & Eddie); Worried Over You (Keith & Enid); Baby Come On Home (Tony Gregory); Sugar Plum (Owen & Millie); The End (Lord Creator) // Ska-Ba (Skatalites); Sho Be Do (Clarendonians); Tear Up (Roland Alphonso); There Is Reward (Higgs & Wilson); One Love (Wailers); You're No Good (Jackie Opel)

Jamiacan reissue in UniPrint (UP) sleeve.

A subtle difference in the sleeve design - as well as the colour change, there is a slight misregistration of the dark spots resulting in the magenta ink overspilling into the white shapes. (Printed by the same company as above, but who have now modernised their logo - United Printers becoming the more familiar UniPrint.)

There's Always Sunshine (Blues Busters); I Know It All (Alton & Eddie); Worried Over You (Keith & Enid); Baby Come On Home (Tony Gregory); Sugar Plum (Owen & Millie); The End (Lord Creator) // Ska-Ba (Skatalites); Sho Be Do (Clarendonians); Tear Up (Roland Alphonso); There Is Reward (Higgs & Wilson); One Love (Wailers); You're No Good (Jackie Opel)

Mid 80s reissue in reproduction sleeve. The label on Side 1 carries the Brentford Road, Kingston, Jamaica address, whereas the label on Side 2 carries the Coxsone's Music City, Brooklyn, New York address, typical of the mid-80s releases..

Note the different placement of 'Vol. 2', which is similar to the later sleeve variation on OLDIES BUT GOODIES VOL.1.
