SONG OF THE DAY Soul Vendors – Swing Easy

a-105865-1222955762-jpegIf this groovin’ little rocksteady number doesn’t make you want to get up and dance, I don’t know what will!  Titled ‘Swing Easy’ and performed by The Soul Vendors, this track was originally released in 1967 as a B-side to The Bases ‘River Jordan.’   After reading this great description on a blog today, I had to quote it because it sums up this track perfectly, describing it as ‘a skank of monumental smoothness!’

The Soul Vendors came together in 1967 when Clement Dodd took a group of musicians to England.  This collective consisted of singers Alton Ellis and Ken Boothe, as well as Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo, Johnny Moore, Lloyd Brevett, Bunny Williams and Errol Walters and together they released a series of great reggae tracks.  Check out one of my favourites above.
