    Roland Alphonso Roll On Charles Street / Raining Outside

    Rock A Shacka
    • Roland Alphonso – Roll On Charles Street
    • Raymond Harper – Raining Outside
    • 1. Roland Alphonso – Roll On Charles Street
    • 2. Raymond Harper – Raining Outside

    Roll On Charles Street: This is a spirited minor key track, with solos by Alphonso and Brooks.
    Trumpeter Harper takes the honours on this one, his trademark vibrato well in evidence. His big hit for Buster was “Mighty Like A Rose”. He also cut the fearsome “African Blood” and a version of the swing classic ‘Tipping In” under the name of Prince Buster & the Torchlighters.
