Original Jamaican issues in textured screenprint sleeves. Not that the track lists on the sleeves are incorrect but the labels are accurate. (Thanks to Cyrille Fouques for the white screenprint illustrations.) ((Click sleeves to enlarge.))

Whether working as a singer, songwriter, promoter, arranger or engineer, Larry Marshall is one of the unsung heroes of the Studio One story. While acting as assistant to Chief Engineer Sylvan Morris, he worked in the studio with artists such as Horace Andy, Dennis Brown, Burning Spear and Freddy McKay. He recorded numerous titles under his own name, as a duo with Alvin Leslie as Larry & Alvin, and as a member of the Studio One scratch vocal group Freedom Singers. Nanny Goat (released as a single on the Supreme label in 1968) is arguably the first song to utilise a reggae rhythm (as distinct from a ska or a rock-steady rhythm). Larry Marshall recorded his best work at Studio One - it's just a pity that this classic collection is the only Larry Marshall album that Coxson chose to release.

Thelma; Throw Me Corn; Mean Girl; Where Has Your Love Gone; Keep On Pushing ((= I've Got To Make It)); Be My Guest // Nanny Goat; How Can I Go On; Get You Off My Mind; Still Mine ((= Together Now)); Promises ((= You Don't Care For Me)); Wonderful World

US re-mix. As far as I know. this is the only instance of the Coxsone rainbow label.

Throw Me Corn is included at the expense of Set Me Free, and the tracks are re-arranged and re-titled. Otherwise, it is the same excellent album. And, of course, much easier to get hold of than the original issue.
