Bless Up

I realize that I've been a little sparse with my posts, so I do appreciate the patience. As most of you probably would agree, there are not enough hours in the day... Will try to post more often than once a month though. Thanks and praise! With that, I leave you with this brilliant tune...

Errol Strength - Tears 12'' [198x Witty Original Pressing]

Never heard of this guy, but he's got a smooth voice as he croons over the same killer riddim as Sluggy Ranks' famous 95% Black track (also on Witty). The song is also supposed to be a loose cover (adapted) of what I'm guessing is Winston Hussey's Tear Drops or Dobby Dobson's Tears On My Pillow. Either way it's a crucial tune, do not miss! Version not included by the way (it's on the flip side).



  1. I think you do more then enough bro. Yes we have short hours in a day and uploading takes a lot of time. All you post i appriciate.
    Go on with the good work bro and all you have i am happy with

    Bless you

  2. ERROL STRENGTH is from Jamaica but living in Boston since 70's
    He voiced HIS version of FORCE MD's massive ballad 'TEARS" first but not long after (matter of weeks) the Jammy's version by Chuck Turner was released and this became a forgotten song.
    He knew WITTY from when they were both young men among the yutes in Gussie Clarke's camp & thats how he got to record this under-rated gem
    GIve thanks for your work, love and efforts in documenting a segment of Reggae history nuff people ignore. RESPECT
