    Glen Brown Wake Up To Reality / Musical Pressure

    Gay Feet
    • Glen Brown – Wake Up To Reality
    • Glen Brown – Musical Pressure
    • 1. Wake Up To Reality
    • 2. Musical Pressure

    Glen and Daves ‘Wake up to reality’ is an early plea for Jamaicans to get along and live together. The song is underpinned by the thumping Nyabinghi drums of Count Ossie. So many of the Gayfeet records seemed to feature Rasta infused drums around this time. The flipside is JoJo Bennetts Musical Pressure. Limited to just 600 copies.
