Winston Francis Mr Fix It
- Words: David Katz
- Label: California Dreaming/Studio One
The soulful Francis made his name at Studio One in the late 1960s with expressive reggae renditions of soul and pop hits totally transformed by his particular delivery and Sir Coxsone‘s sterling arrangements. Mr Fix It has individualized covers of Sam Cooke‘s "Chain Gang" and Joe South‘s "Games People Play," as well as the wonderful "Fix It," while California Dreaming has killer versions of Sly Stone‘s "Stand" and Junior Walker‘s "What Does It Take," in addition to the creeping, semi-orchestrated title track. This two-for-one reissue also features the emotive "Let‘s Go To Zion," one of Studio One‘s finest devotional songs.
