...or just went on forever

1. wailing souls - very well
2. aksumites - ark of the covenant

i'm sure more will come to me...but i like to listen to these 3-4 times in a row so they sound really long

Here's one that really does go on for ages on both sides, but I have always though too short:

Dennis Brown & Big Youth - In His Own Way 12" only 7 and a half minutes each side!

Those two can be medley'd after each other too ( just a semitone up)!

One thing i tend to like about reggae is songs not going on too long; There's plenty of songs I love that are under 3 minutes, some under 2 minutes, and I can't say I want any of them to be any longer, although I have sometimes heard a song and thought i'd much prefer it if it was a bit shorter. After all, unless hearing it is your last request before being executed or something, you can always follow it with another great song, listen to it again, or flip it over and listen to the dub version if there is one.

Wish there was a dub version to this one...isn't the vocal already 7 or 8 minutes long ?

My choice of tune - Bagga Matumbi "Daughter Of Zion" - killer tune running only for 2 minutes long...have to play both sides at least twice every time !

a pitty there's not dub...fe real!

I remember when i had it some years back i didn't absolutely know that there was a Dj cut on the flipside...also on the 1st thebes press the label on b side says Covenant Dub , so when i first listened to it i was a bit disappointed not to find the dub!

maybe RB can tell us if there's been a dub...maybe on dubplate (have my dubt) or maybe remained on the tape and was never released!

Would love an extralong cut of Lloyd Charmers - Safari...a long Sidewalk Doctor session...
