Dave Robinson - I Bet You Don't Know
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOUR PANELS TO VIEW GRADING STANDARDSSOUND SAMPLE TAKEN FROM ACTUAL RECORD AT FLAT RESPONSE This is an original New York pressing of the 1975 release "I Bet You Don't Know" by Dave Robinson, produced by Dickie Wong on the Merritone US label. Originally issued on the Tit For Tat label, the studio band is Skin Flesh & Bones featuring Sly Dunbar on drums, Lloyd Parks on bass, Ranchie McLean & Rad Bryan on guitars, and Jimmy Becker, the white American bluesman from Chicago playing harmonica. The B-side is the usual dub/version mix of the song. "I Bet You Don't Know" was written by Robinson's close friend Dennis Brown. In an interview with Peter I, Robinson describes the making of the record: "Dickie [Wong, producer] was a real nice person. He was just straight with his music, he said, 'Well, I want this..'. They came to my school and got me to do 'I Bet You Don't Know' to put the vocals on, and when I went I was still in high school - I was seventeen, I think I was, they came and got me at school and say, 'Dave, we need you to come around the corner and at such a time we go to King Tubbys, can you go?' I said OK, and I took two cut to be sure. Two cuts of that song, and after the second cut Dickie said, 'That's it, I think this one is good enough'. And after a couple months it was booming over in New York, I was in the number one slot. Eight weeks." This record is from my personal collection; I'm not really a buy & sell-or-trade type of seller. Like much of my vinyl, I bought this record when it came out, played it a few times, recorded it to cassette and then put it back in its sleeve for the next 35 years! Visually, the vinyl shows very little sign of wear. It's been wet cleaned, then both sides archived to CD by me as part of the grading process. Guaranteed free of skips and loud scratches when I used a tonearm weighted at 1.5 grams.
