Ska-Motion; Bollo-Man; Chiney Baby; Ska And Fall Back; Jack Ass; Jamaica // Shame And Scandal; The Dove; Seven Bells; Ethiopia; Tom Dooley; Parson And All

Original Jamaican issue (some copies pressed on red, yellow, orange or green vinyl). The same pressing can also be found on a blue & silver WIRL label. The 1027 matrix is machine stamped, but WIRL-5 is hand written. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

The Hiltonairs first album. It was recorded at Studio One but pressed at West Indies Records Limited (WIRL). The sticker (not present on all copies) says STEREO, but it sounds like mono to my ears. The cover design is by Roy Tomlinson.
