Day 231 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Tidals - (You Don't Know) How Glad I Am

The Tidals were a vocal trio made up of Winston Cleveland, Eupert Reid and Aston Pryce who started out in the 60s.  They made their first foray into recording in 1973 with producer Phil Pratt before cutting today's track "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am" two years later for Alvin Ranglin.  "How Glad I Am" originally appeared as a single on the Boss Disco label in Jamaica and Attack in the UK and the various artists LP Atlantic One released on the Horse label that same year.  The album is an absolute classic with tracks by Gregory Isaacs, The Maytones, The G.G. Allstars, etc. and today's tune by The Tidals is one of the best!  A perfect tune for a Saturday I might add...
