• Johnny Clarke – Sit Down & Wonder
    • Johnny Clarke – Version Remix
    • 1. Sit Down & Wonder
    • 2. Version Remix

    Voiced over Sugar Minott’s 'Victim Of Society'' rhythm that was reissued a couple of years back, this time featuring legendary Rootsman himself Johnny Clarke with 'Sit Down & Wonder'. First time on a 7" it was originally voiced in 1985, however the tapes would sit stagnant on the shelves for almost 20 years before surfacing again on a Black Scorpio compilation called 'Come With Me'. Combining the vintage with the modern we have also added a new 2020 mix to this deadly version.
