Blue Moon (Brentford Rockers); Words (Jeff & Marcia); Riding For A Fall (Delroy Wilson); Hot Milk (Jackie Mittoo & Sound Dimension) // More Scorcher (Jackie Mittoo & Sound Dimension); I'll Never Fall In Love Again (Alton Ellis); Come Back Darling (Johnny Osbourne); Mr Sea (Johnny Osbourne)

Originally released in the USA on the red & yellow label with the Coxson's Muzik City, Freeport, Long Island address, and in Jamaica on the rosette label with the Brentford Road, Kingston address. Note the late correction to the matrix with the A scribbled out and replaced with a B, although the tracks attributed to sides 1 and 2 on the sleeve and labels are printed the other way around. The sleeve design by O'Neil Nanco is printed on thick brown card. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))

The third (and last) in the series of Studio One Showcase albums. This one differs from the previous editions by featuring only three extended versions as well as two instrumentals.
