"This is the re-release of our second ever Rough Trade single release. Richard Scott was working with us, developing a mail order and then a distribution company, and had deep Jamaican connections as he had been part of the management team for Third World.

He made a deal with Joan Higgins, a 15-year-old relative of Augustus Pablo, who worked the Saturday shift in Pablo's Kingston Record shop. A man called Everton Da Silva was also involved, perhaps as a go between.

I always maintained this is one of the best ever Rough Trade releases, if not actually the best. One of my very bad jokes is that it was all downhill from this point. In any case it's a monumental record, and very likely justification for the whole enterprise." - Geoff Travis, 2023
