Here is a real mystery single: on the Narrow Way Gospel "label" out of Jamaica (crudely hand-printed, with a quote from Isaiah) comes this oddity which is clearly Jamaican singers but has a peculiar Pacific feel to it in the guitars.
Another one-off bought in Brixton just simply because it sounds so good -- but whoever Mr and Mrs Mattis are might remain unknown . . . unless you can help.
If not, no matter. Just enjoy (behind the inevitable surface noise, because this is taken straight from the old record) the sound of this gospel/Jamaican Pacific music.
