Was issued on the Boss Reggae Pama Economy album which took 12 Coxsone Dodd tracks and pushed them out in one budget album. But was this track ever recorded as a Studio One/Coxsone single? Or available on a CD anywhere? Thanks.

No; Coxsone often passed his lesser tunes (those that hadn't been released or taken off in Jamaica) to Junior Lincoln to do with as he saw fit. There are a fair number of Studio One tracks only available on UK released LPs on labels like Bamboo, so these tracks were probably sold to the Palmer Brothers for a one-off cash payment

Thank You.I new Junior and used to frequent the shop at 88 Stroud Green Road and worked for Pama, and you are right about the tracks, often by the Freedom Singers eg their version of Monkey Man which still had more cred in 1970 than the original.
Shame about some of these as they are amazing and I've been banging my head against a brick wall trying to get Soul Jazz to do a Spirit of 69 type reggae album.
