A.  Monkey Man 
B.  Day And Night


The Maytals “Monkey Man.” Recorded in 1969, the cut was a smash hit in Jamaica and hit number 47 when released in the UK in early 1970. “Monkey Man” went on to be highly influential on the British Two-Tone movement of the later 70s with The Specials offering up a ripping version of the cut on their 1979 debut. The B Side, “Night And Day”, though not a chart-burner, is certainly one of the most solid rock-steady cuts you’ll ever encounter rife with bubbly keys, tight snares and Toots Hibbert’s incredibly soulful vocals.
