Delroy Wilson – Rain from the Skies (1967)

“This rocksteady gem, released in 1968, was another in the string of hits Delroy Wilson cut for Coxsone Dodd, and amongst the last; before the year was out, the star departed for greener pastures. The backing is fabulous, all throbbing bass line, bouncy guitar and piano, and smokey trombone solos, a Studio One jewel. Overhead, in a sublime performance, Wilson emotively yearns for his far-away girl, whose taken the sunshine with her, leaving him with dark skies, rain and tears. A romantic classic.”
