STUDIO PRESENTS JENNIFER LARA1
Jennifer Lara (1981)

Studio One SO LP 0138
matrix: SOLP 0138

A Woman; A Change Is Gonna Come; Hurt So Good (Mad Mad Mad); Close To You (Fattie Fattie); Impossible // Loving You; Our Love; Love And Harmony; Ain't No Love (College Rock); Rocking Tonight

This superb vocal outing from one of Jamaica's most underrated singers - I can't believe this is her only solo album - was originally released on a red & yellow Studio One label in 1981. My copy is so badly warped that I have frequently used it as a reference disc to test the ability of turntables to play Studio One vinyl (very few have passed the test...).

Ten tracks of sweet vocals over (mostly) original rhythyms. This issue features synthethiser overdubs (most noticeable on Impossible).

Studio One CD reissue with 6 extra tracks: Consider Me, I Am In Love, I Need You Always, Hold Me Baby, Where Have All The Good Men Gone and Suki Yaki. Slightly remixed (the synthesiser overdubs are replaced with authentic sax, and the dub version of Where Have All The Good Men Gone is included rather than the straight vocal).

Excellent value from Studio One - extra tracks, excellent sound quality, and we even get sleeve notes from Norma Dodd...

Studio One SO LP 0138
matrix: SOLP 0138

A Woman; A Change Is Gonna Come; Hurts So Good (Mad Mad Mad); Close To You (Fattie Fattie); Consider Me (I Don't Know Why); Loving You; Our Love // Love And Harmony; Ain't No Love (College Rock); Rocking Tonight; I Am In Love; I Need You Always (I Hold The Handle); Hold Me Baby; Its Impossible

The vinyl version of the CD reissue with 10 tracks (omitting Where Have All The Good Men Gone and Suki Yaki). This is a very clean pressing with excellent sound quality, which makes a very welcome replacement for the original warped vinyl.
