OLDIES BUT GOODIES VOL.1
Various Artists (c.1969)

Studio One GW 0002
matrix: FCD-7208

Muriel (Alton & Eddy); How Can I Be Sure (Higgs & Wilson); It Hurts To Be Alone (Wailers); You Won't See Me (Clarendonians); Cry Me A River (Jackie Opel); Dancing Mood (Delroy Wilson) // Downbeat Special (Blues Blasters); Easy Snapping (T. Beckford); Put It On (Wailers); I Don't Want To See You Cry (Ken Boothe); I've Got To Go Back Home (Bob Andy); *Way Out West (Roland Alphonso)

Original Jamaican issue in United Printers sleeve. Note that all the early pressings have surface noise throughout. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

An album that definitely lives up to its title, being an exemplary selection of Studio One productions dating from 1959 (the seminal Easy Snapping) up to 1966 (You Won't See Me, Dancing Mood, Put It On, I Don't Want To See You Cry and I've Got To Go Back Home). It was probably released in 1969 or shortly after (judging by the release dates of the albums illustrated on the reverse of the sleeve). Subsequently repressed on red vinyl.

*Way Out West is wrongly listed on sleeve and label as Junior Jive on all issues.

Beckford); Put It On (Wailers); I Don't Want To See You Cry (Ken Boothe); I've Got To Go Back Home (Bob Andy); Way Out West (Roland Alphonso)

Jamiacan reissue in facsimile sleeve. Clean pressing this time.

Note the subtle variations in the sleeve design - the text is placed differently over the patterned background (check the placement of the dot below 'Vol. 1') and the green dots are slightly darker.

1980s reissue on a variety of labels (including Coxsone).

A further minor variation on the sleeve design, with a different placement for 'Vol. 1'. Compare with the mid-80s reissue of OLDIES BUT GOODIES VOL.2.
