Junior C Reaction – Better Must Come 1985 (A cover of Delroy Wilson’s 1971 classic).
One of the best British Reggae bands ever played on John Peel and Janice Long’s shows on radio one and did a live session, a rather over produced and somewhat butchered version of this song produced by Groucho Smykle eneded up being released on The Cool Tempo label in 1986 and was C-listed on both radio one and Capital radio at the time, but this is the original demo (recorded live for a total cost of £80) which was far better than the pureed skank Groucho Smykle destroyed it with and was used as the B-side on the 12″ version of the record.
Junior C Reaction were from Derby and their late singer/songwriter Errol Cowell was one of the best British Reggae singers ever.
