I Shall Be Released (Heptones); I Don't Mind (Bassies); Moving Away (Ken Boothe); Studio Rock (Soul Vendors); Girl I'm Sorry (Owen Grey); Please Stop Your Crying (Larry Marshall & the Cables) // More Love (Jackie Mittoo); Pleading (Ken Boothe); Why Did You Leave (Heptones); Each Day I Love You More (Owen Grey); Baby Why (Cables); Walking In The Footsteps (Dobby Dobson)

Original UK issue in mono on the Bamboo label (pre-dating the Jamaican issues below), all with the same stamped matrices. The laminated sleeve is printed in England by Richard Davis Limited. The photography is by Nick Holt. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

The second in the series of Studio One compilations released in the UK by Junior Lincoln's Bamboo Records Ltd. Most of these titles were issued as singles in the UK, either on the Bamboo label or on the UK Studio 1 imprint. Track A2 is credited to Blases on the sleeve and the label, but is actually by the Bassies. Track A5 is credited to Cables but is actually by Larry Marshall (possibly backed by the Cables). Owen Grey's Girl I'm Sorry and Each Day I Love You More (both Junior Lincoln productions) are unique to this LP and were not released as singles.

1980s Jamaican reissue/repress with a new title in a reconfigured sleeve. On the front the STEREO box covers up the MONO text from the UK sleeve; the box containing the catalogue number SOL 9014 (the same number as A SCORCHER FROM STUDIO ONE) covers BLP 202 from the original; and the STUDIO ONE logo covers the BAMBOO logo. On the back of the sleeve production is solely credited to C. S. Dodd with Sylvan Morris credited as Engineer. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))
