Lester Sterlin

Whilst I am in the ska mood I might as well upload some tracks from this Pama LP from Lester Sterlin who had a hit on the reggae charts back in the late 60's with a tune called "Bangarang" - the title track of this record of mostly chugging instrumentals.

Not much gleaned from the internet about Lester but this is what the sleeve notes say-

"In December a new sound hit the music scene and this new sound was called Reggae. Among the most outstanding in this field of music, was a tune called BANGARANG performed by Lester Sterlin with narration and singing by the sophisticated "Stranger Cole". The number was the Reggae Number One Hit for quite a few months and still quite a favoutite. the gret Joe Loss Band wasted not time in including this number in their repertoire and feature it quite a lot, to the thrill and entheastification of their thousands of followers."

The young lady on the sleeve is Miss Unity Records, Eunice Cooke.
