IN MEMORY OF DON DRUMMOND1
Don Drummond (1969)

Studio One CSL-8021
matrix:

Green Island; Scrap Iron; Man In The Street; This Man Is Back; Royal Flush; Reload // Far East; Sudden Attack; Walk The Town; Johnny Dark; Look Through The Window; Adis-Aba-Ba

Original press, without matrix number (well, none that I can see, anyway). Sudden Attack, Walk The Town and Johnny Dark are Prince Buster productions.

The catalogue number would suggest that this was considered for a UK release on the blue Coxsone label, but was only issued in Jamaica. The original sleeve is printed on off-white paper mounted on buff coloured card, and there is no printer credited. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

Green Island; Scrap Iron; Man In The Street; This Man Is Back; Royal Flush; Reload // Far East; Sudden Attack; Walk The Town; Johnny Dark; Look Through The Window; Adis-Aba-Ba

1980s repress in a reproduction sleeve with white border on the opening edge and no printer credited. I think the red & yellow label pre-dates the rosette label - both have the Coxsone's Music City, Brooklyn, New York address on Side 1, but the rosette label has the Brentord Road, Kingston, Jamaica address on Side 2 instead.

Man In The Street; Don D. Memorial; Don Cosmic; Sound One; Don D. Serenade; Reload; Street Corner // Vat 7; Scandal; Rock Away*; Cool Shade; Marcus Junior**; Thoroughfare; Green Island

1990s reissue that only shares 3 tracks with the original vinyl album: Man In The Street, Reload & Green Island. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

* Track B3 is listed on the sleeve and label as Rock Away, but this is not the same as the Rock Away that was released in the UK on the R&B label in 1963.
** Track B5 is listed as Lawless Street but is actually Marcus Junior, produced by Justin Yapp.
Don D Memorial is actually Don Drummond's Memory by Roland Alphonso, a Treasure Isle production; Vat 7 was produced by Leslie Kong; and Street Corner and Thoroughfare are also Treasure Isle productions.

The same tracks were also released on CD (Studio One CD-8021).
