Yes. I think they had it in the £10 bins at LionVibes when I visited the store last December. Or rather I know they had a red label Aswad Dub 12" with one side dubs and one side was blank. Can't remember what the rhythms were however. Love Fire might have been one. It was in pretty bad shape so I didn't pick it up.

Asked Bulby about it a few years back but he couldn't remember. I know its been relicked but talking about an original cut back in about 91. Anyone heard it?


Mits, is it possible your friends have heard a cut of 'Tease Me' riddim which is pretty similar (identical?) to 'Can't Test Me'?

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with it. The 12" I'm thinking of had a red label (just noticed you said white label with red stamp) and the more I think about it the Love Fire dub was supposed to be on it (IIRC same mix as album).

Hi Markos,
Don't think so, this was years ago. Is that the tease me ridden from a couple of years ago? Don't sound like can't test me to my ears. The one I'm talking about is this

Yeah I'm talking about the same record, I bought the Sugar when it came out and was never aware of another tune with the same mix.

This is the Tease Me I was referring to which was a massive hit in 1992/93, after relistening it is a little faster than the Sugar but still some strong similarities, riddim starts about 45 secs in: https://youtu.be/3HhCWzNBq1U

Ah, old classic, and agree the drums are similar but bass line different plus the effects. Cheers though. Boys insist it was on the sugar Minnott. The search continues..,

Lumumba by BONNIE & SKITTER on Worldisc. Has anyone ever seen one? What's on the other side?

Woah! There it is, in all its silver-on-purple glory!! Thanks RB

I've actually got a copy of Hard Time Baby on a purple blank, with JM-688 and GRC 6145 in the run-out. Somewhat frustratingly, it's got an unknown US R&B instrumental (A 0006) on the flip. Not a bad tune but not Lumumba

And, for me at least, Hard Time Baby/Lumumba is quite an interesting coupling. The matrix number of Hard Time Baby suggests that it was one of the very first Worldisc releases in late 1959, whereas RKR has the matrix for Lumumba as FC 155, which probably dates it some time in 1961. Patrice Lumumba was assassinated on 17th January 1961.
