On the A side dancefloor bomb "The Little you say" by The Revolution of St.Vincent. Founded in the early 70s by Harold "Ploomie" Lewis the original 45 on WIRL label is one of the most in-demand tropical funk 45 at the moment and change hands on eBay for big big money.
On The flip side, for the FIRST TIME on the superior 45 format, "It's a feeling" by The St.Maarteen's The Rolling Tones. The band based in the southern dutch area of St.Vincent island, was formed in the 70s by Adolphus Richardson. Previously available on LP only, "It's a feeling" is taken from their "International sounds" album, possibly the hardest tropical funk LP to find around these days. This 45 will set every dancefloor on fire ... get on it fast cause is strictly limited to 500 copies!
