Great bit of footage. I'm biased but the Hammond organ really makes the sound of early Selecter. Stax with the depth of reggae.

Halfy's right. Imagine watching a 2019 version of Dance Craze? It'd be like a 2 hour advert for Samsung. Surprised Laughing

Excellent find. Really enjoyed that. Great quality too

The end credits say The Bodysnatchers and The Beat were also on that show, hope that footage turns up at some stage - it must exist surely.
