Richie Davis - Sensi Boom / You Ha Fe Cool 12'' [198x Unity Original Pressing]

Nice likkle mellow double sided UK release out of the Unity stable. "Nicotine" Davis with an anti-coke, pro-ishans message over Ba Ba Boom riddim on the A side. The flip is mislabeled as Talk About We (that's why it says Side One), but is actually the song You Ha Fe Cool. You can check the same riddim on Kenny Knots - Ring My Number, and Mikey Murka - Back Your Automatic. Unity had a very original style that really sets them apart from other dancehall of that time, both ah yard and abroad. The man behind it all was Robert "Ribs" Fearon, who both ran the sound and produced the studio recordings himself. As unique as they are, this explains why a lot of the Unity riddims have such similar basslines and effects (not a bad thing!). Versions are also included on both of the rips.
