2010 reissue - Japan

Yvonne Harrison recorded about a dozen sides starting with a couple of duet records in the early 60s with Roy Panton and also Derrick Morgan. Backed by Tommy McCook's band, 'Near To You' was written by her.

Simply a fantastic reissue press of her original 1968 Caltone recording. I've always preferred finding original first press records. This is an exception. Bought it through the mail (about 12 bucks w/postage).
To run into this 45 is tough enough, especially outside the UK. Expect $200. to $400. for an original press, that is if you find someone who wants to sell it?!

I've been completely obsessed with this 45. There are a few rocksteady sides one could call haunting. Haunting, beautiful, quality rocksteady sound and vocal.
