Can anyone add to the following (short) list of the artists production co-operative 'Links'. These, all from 1968, are the only ones I am sure of:

Aren't you the guy Gaylads, The
Can't see you Ken Boothe
Give love a try Delroy Wilson
It comes & goes Melodians, The
Looking for a girl Gaylads, The
Sweet rose Melodians, The

I'm not 100% sure what you mean by Links, but these two were linked to Links (awful!) in an old discography. Both tracks co-produced by Bunny Lee & Delroy Wilson and originally released in late 60's. Out again not so long ago on Neville Sounds.

I Want To Love You - Delroy Wilson
Once Upon A Time - Delroy Wilson

I should have checked first but the two titles I gave were back to back originally on 7" label Links (UK) 1968. The producers were Delroy Wilson & Stranger Cole.

There was another label about at the time W & C (Wilson & Cole?) which may be of interest to you
Love Me This Evening / Over Again - Stranger Cole & Gladdy Anderson
So Nice Like Rice / Over Again - Charley Kelly / Stranger & Gladdy
(know nothing about these two but both from 1968 through Island)

Don't Get Weary/Version - Tony Brevett, no year on label, early 70s I think. Maybe 1971/72.

"So nice like rice" is a top tune, Thought that one was a S Cole production.
Had never noticed that it came on Island.

Can dub you that one Jackie if you want, Mail me!

Sweet Rose/It Comes And Goes by The Melodians are two all-time rock steady killers that I just picked up on UK Fab on EBay.

Cheers for your message Mike, by the way.
