"Say You" was taken from a U-Roy version, therefore are the writer credits. U-Roy is toasting over a Naggo Morris 1976 remake of the famous Ken Boothe song from 1968 which was written by Harris Seaton as it can be seen on the label on this release: Ken Boothe, Lyn Taitt & The Jets* / Lyn Taitt & The Jets* - Say You / Smokey Place. However it's complicated, the real original version is written by Robert Dobyne, Robert Staunton and Charles Jones. The first recording was made by The Temptations in 1965.
I like the Colourbox version of this tune. In 1984 I visited my first Reggae concert and started listening carefully to Reggae on radio, before that there was Reggae around, but I wasn't really aware of it.

Fast Dump is the track for me...An electro dubby type thing. Wouldn't be out of place on a Streetsounds compilation: Electro Dubby Type Things Box Set 1. Sounds well dated now, but then so do I.
