Green Guava Jelly

Hi again,

'Green Guava Jelly' is a record I hadn't listened to in years before last night. It's a reggae cover of an old mento standard which was also done by the Wailers. This is a nice mellow track, with great percussion which really comes out well in the dub. I always liked the label as well.

It was produced by Rupie Edwards, and got quite an enjoyable deejay makeover ('Jelly Belly Nelly') by Shorty The President. The Tellers made at least one other excellent mento-flavoured record: 'Fat Beef' which came out on Winston Riley's Techniques label.

bro, do you have more rootsy early 70s singles, like the ones in "Sounds of the 70s selection?"

That was a great one especially the Noel Tempa single.
