KING OF SAX1
Tenor Man Trip (Henry The Great); Soul Equalizer (Full Up); Nu Fashion; King Of Sax (Queen Of The Minstrel); Mac The Knife // Bumpy Skank (Things A Come Up To Bump); Hanky Skanky; Sound Beam (I'm Still In Love With You); Big Papa (Blue Dot/Hot Rod); Theme From The Barber
Originally released on the Winro label in a plain sleeve, but can be found in a variety of generic Studio One sleeves (the DISCO 45 jacket above is an example ). Later repressed on the Studio 1 label, but still without a picture sleeve.
One of the stone cold classic Studio One albums. Sadly overlooked in the recent reissue programmes, and certainly worthy of serious critical reappraisal.

US reissue with unfortunate remixes of Mack The Knife and Theme From The Baba, and an (unnecessary) additional track. The picture sleeve is designed by O'Neil Nanco. Buy the original version (if you can find one). ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))
