A nice piece of rocksteady featuring some lyrics from the Jamaican folk song ‘Black Girl In The Ring’. ‘Cinderella’ on Amalgamated is not to be confused with the Beverley’s release of the same name which is a ska number and not the same tune. Once again ‘Cinderella’ was available on the Trojan CD Get On Up! – Joe Gibbs Rocksteady [1967-68].

Catch The Beat’s instrumental Cut ‘Secret Weapon’ is probably better known than this orginal vocal cut. ‘Catch The Beat’ was available on The Trojan CD Long Shot Kick De Bucket: the Best of the Pioneers but I think that this too has now been deleted.

Credited here to Dan(Don) D. Junior an alias for Vin Gordon. I’m almost certain this track is the same as Tommy McCook’s ‘Soulful Mood’. Not sure what is going on here with the typical Amalgamated miscrediting but either way it is not available on CD.
