    • 1. The Big Job
    • 2. version

    A jazzy led instrumental from Saxophone player Lester Sterling. First appeared in the UK on the Count Shellys label but was originally released in Jamaica. Early reggae rhythm that gives Lester Sterling space to stretch out and blow a funky improvised solo. Produced by Bunny Lee it is re-pressed on the Jamaican Attack label and comes in a picture sleeve. Great Instrumental piece.
