About

Produced by Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.

Recorded at Channel One with The Revolutionaries.
The english release (D-Roy) doesn't include track 4 ('Shine Eye').

Reissued in 1983 on Heartbeat under the name of GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER

 

There are 2 different cover on label D-Roy (one full with tracklisting to the rear and the other with hole like maxis without credits to the rear). There are also three different labels for D-Roy releases. The first with brown lettring, second with black lettring and the other with red lettring. It's hard to say which cover is for which label because we often find unsuited LP. Pour un certain nombre de tirages (sans doute très restreint) du label avec lettrage marron, force est de constater que le titre ' Guess Who's Coming To Dinner ' est different des autres pressages avec le lettrage marron et qui plus est de ceux avec le lettrage noir ou rouge. En effet, cette version différente n'est autre que la version du maxi 45t sur ce même label D-Roy, version plus acoustique avec un piano très accentué et sans les sirènes en introduction.

Red and black labels that we usually find with the full cover.

Brown label (that we usually find with the tapped cover) with a different mix on the song "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" on some pressings.
