Tonto Irie - Hot Up Bout Ya 7'' [198x Rythem Track Original Pressing]

This bad tune is on the same riddim as Little Bimbo's (aka Garnet Silk) Problem Everywhere tune, back when Silk was a deejay and before his rise to fame as a roots singer. This tune also includes similar lyrics to Tonto's World Best Lover track, which is probably the best tune he ever released. From what I've noticed, pretty much everything on the Rythem Track label from the 80's is crucial and rare (and expensive)! Another example of a small independent label that prioritized quality over quantity of material.
