Skinhead Revolt / The Thief

'Skinhead Revolt' by Joe 'The Boss' aka Joe Mansano, was first released in 1970 on the Trojan sublabel Joe as a B side to the track “Tony B’s Theme” by Joey’s All Stars. 

'The Thief' was released in 1969 on the Joe Label with the track 'Gun The Man Down' by Dice The Boss on the flip. 'Gun The Man Down' is also being repressed by Harlem Shuffle on a separate single.

Both titles are British Boss Reggae classics that are very much demand. 

About Joe Mansano: 

'Skinhead Revolt' and 'The Thief' are both written, produced and performedby Joe Mansano, real name Joel Mansano. Joel was a Trinidadian who moved to London in 1963. He was a record shop seller, song writer and producer and became heavily involved in the early reggae era producing and writing tracks for several Jamaican artists, enough for Trojan to dedicate a label to him: the 'Joe' label aimed at the emerging Skinheads market. He also owned a shop the Joe's Record Centre in Brixton and recorded two handfuls of popular singles under the name Joe The boss…

This single is now super rare and very much in demand.
