This is the first release on 7inch vinyl single of these two masterpieces by The Paragons.
Attention: This is a special limited edition - strictly limited to 500 copies - one release only.

In 1964 John Holt and Howard Barrett replaced Menz,and Stamp and the name was changed to The Paragons. Anderson left in 1965, and The Paragons continued as a trio. After John Holt left to pursue a solo career, Vic Taylor took Holt's place. The trio initially recorded two outstanding albums: the legendary “On The Beach” 1967, and the equally good “Riding High“- later renamed “The Paragons with Roslyn Sweat” - in 1974. Most of their many masterpieces come from these two albums... They carried on recording more albums, the latest being “The Paragons Return” with John Holt.

Title: "WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE LOW" Artist: THE PARAGONS - Limited Edition 500 copies
Year: 1967

Produced by Duke Reid
This is a licensed reissue of the track featured on the album “On The Beach”- Treasure Isle - 1967
This gorgeous and haunting song boasts remarkable singing and musicianship allied to the finest song-writing. A Rocksteady masterpiece that totally deserved being released as a single at last.

Title: "I’ll Be Back" - Artist: THE PARAGONS - Limited Edition 500 copies
Year: 1967

This is a licensed reissue of the track featured on the album “On The Beach” -Treasure Isle - 1967
This brilliant Rocksteady track is in fact a cover of a less known but fine Beatles song “I’ll Be Back” featured on the “Beatles 65” album which was released in the U.S. only. This gem sounds 100% like a Paragons song though, with gorgeous harmonies being served on an upbeat Rocksteady rhythm, complete with thumping bass and powerful horns. Brilliant.
