9. John Holt, “Only A Smile”john-holt

This reggae version of the Paragons’ rocksteady tune, with far more active drums and a rootsy bass line, is a classic rub up and dub tune that highlights the sound of Channel One Studio. John Holt sings about leaving a beautiful but disappointing lover, knowing that other men will do the same once they get to really know her.
