    • 1. Such Is Life
    • 2. Come Down 68

     Lord Creator was imprisoned for 18 months for possession of a small amount of cannabis (although the fact that he was a Trinidadian most likely had something to do with the excessive severity of the sentence). After release from prison, recording "Such is Life" at Randy's studio, which he had written while incarcerated.  The B side features Lord Creator singing about his time in prison with a lovers twist that makes an interesting contrast to Toots Hibbert's more defiant treatment of the same theme in "54-46, That's My Number", released the same year.
