The All Nations tune mentioned by Mr Dalton also comes on a 12" on the Dance Beat label.
Also look out for the High Note 12" The Techniques - You Don't Care/I'm In The Mood For Love which has Devon toasting.
Captain who posts here (or used to), did an excellent compilation of RD's singles .......


cheers

thanks a whole lot for the info!!!
yes, i did get a copy of the High Note 12", but haven't had the time to play it yet.
Captain did a great job indeed, actually i think it's thanks to him that i discovered Ranking Devon in the first place!
cheers!


You're welcome :-)
I don't have any background info on the artist unfortunately,

I believe Ranking Devon's given name is Devon Douglas and he was born in Kingston. He also appeared on a couple of Gemini sessions (late 1981 and early 1982) that are on our Who Cork The Dance site.
