It was an Island blank. Same label issue as the Rico Dub LP. You can hear a bit of Ijahman harmonizing on the instrumental Rico LP. Great song. It's not a cut of Dial Africa but of Africa. Last song on the other side of the LP.

Speaking of Rico. I remember once seeing some alternative cover art for his Man From Wareika LP but can't remember where I saw it. Anyone that has a clue? Still one of the absolutely finest releases I've heard. Incredible album and the one that got me hooked on reggae (was recommended it by a friend since I listened so much to jazz and he thought it would be to my liking).

Holy cow, this is a wicked wicked thing. Never knew it had been released as a song (as opposed to the instrumental on Rico's album)
