    A real chart oddity. This record came out of left field and soared to the UK No1 spot in early 1978. The girls disappeared quicker than they's arrived. A real one hit wonder. One of just a handful of Reggae records that reached the No1 spot in the UK

      Another label variation exists with both sides as Side 2, and the credit for publishing going to Lightning/carlin
