Upsetters - Return Of Django LP (180g orange vinyl)

Toots & The Maytals - Funky Kingston LP (180g. Import)
Blackwell reissued a bulked-up version of Funky Kingston in the mid-'70s on his Mango subsidiary, adding in the immortal "Pressure Drop" and a reimagining of John Denver's "Country Roads", to make a much better and stronger set.
