  • Gaylads - If You Don't Mind / People Crying
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Soul Beat UK brings us timeless music from some three decades ago as two classic rocksteady tunes from the golden-voiced trio the Gaylads - consisting of B.B. Seaton, Delano Stewart and Maurice Roberts - are made available once again throught the release of this double A-sided revive 7" single. Both tunes are solid deliveries and fully display the fine singing abilities of the members of a trio which scored hit after hit in the rocksteady era for a variety of producers including Coxsone Dodd and Sonia Pottinger. "If You Don't Mind" and also "People Crying" are prime examples of the great influence US soul groups had on the Jamaican vocal outfits. "If You Don't Mind" is a fine lovers tune, but it's the wonderful reality tune "People Crying" which impresses most. Truly entertaining and enjoyable efforts, still well worth hearing!!
