Various Triple Dons 1

As the seemingly unending trend towards reissues of '70s reggae continues apace, Smugg releases a collection that new and seasoned fans alike are going to find difficult to resist. Horace Andy, Johnny Osbourne, and Frankie Paul are three of the greatest Jamaican vocalists of the last 30 years. Andy could sing the Golden Girls theme and draw tears from even the most casual listener.
