Catalog no.: RROOCD0000308

Item ID: 443991

Clarke's 'Satisfaction' LP was recorded at Harry J for Bunny Lee, voiced at King Tubby's studio, and issued by Third World in 1979. It is a set largely comprised of cover tunes, such as the strong opening update of the Paragons, 'Riding For A Fall', the title track adapting their rock steady hit 'My Satisfaction' in a post-rockers style. Better still is the hard-hitting reality tune 'Play Fool, Get Wise', which uses a proverb to relate a means of avoiding trouble on the dog-eat-dog mean streets of Kingston.
