I've a copy here with same labels but "MPO" etched into run-outs (not DAMONT) and the run-out is within an inch of labels (DAMONT release has greater dead wax space) although tracks still cut at 33.

There doesn't seem to be any credit in the original versions for the sample from the following (1984) release (which was re-issued in 1992):

There is a credit in the '97 release though, which is how I discovered this!

On A Ragga Tip built nicely on the ragamuffin (or even ska!) styling of SL2's previous smash "Way In My Brain" and the memorable hook helped it get to number 2 in the UK singles chart without denting SL2's credibility too much. The third man on the recording was one MC Screechy, who some years later was discovered to be working as a mechanic at a London bus depot.
