Day 267 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Errol "Flabba" Holt - Happiness

Before Errol "Flabba" Holt took on a full-time gig behind the bass he recorded a couple solo releases which I have enjoyed for years and today's track "Happiness" comes from one of those albums.  Holt's album Visions Of Africa was released in 1978 on the Dread & Dread label and featuring backing by The Revolutionaries, The Soul Syndicate and the Mighty Cloud Band was recorded at Channel One, Randy's and Joe Gibbs and produced by Prince Jammy and it is pure niceness!  Lots of beautiful echo and reverb that I have always loved about this era's sound.
