Groovy Beat (+ Jura Soundsystem Edit) - The Pearls [ISLE009]
Label: Isle Of Jura Records
Following ‘On & On’ we present the second reissue from The Pearls, the sought after ‘Groovy Beat / Groovy Rock’ originally released in 1980 on their Reality Hits label. Expect another fusion of Disco, Reggae & Rap influenced by the sounds coming out of New York at this time from the likes of Sugarhill Gang and Grandmaster Flash, but with a distinctly Jamaican vocal delivery from Norman Watson and Stanley Shaw. On the flip side label head Jura Soundsystem combines both versions for an extended edit which includes snippets of studio chatter found on the original master tape.
