These Eyes – Let Me Love / Soca Hustle (7″, RE)
These Eyes – Let Me Love / Soca Hustle
The A-side ‘Let Me Love’ sounds like doo wop recorded with Oluko Imo’s gear. And the B-side ‘Soca Hustle’ sounds like the Residents jamming a Marvin Whoremonger song with Augustus Pablo. The original 45 is so obscure that even his siblings didn’t know that he made music. And rumour has it that, frustrated by its lack of success, Michael threw most of the copies of the 45 in the valley beside his family’s house in the hills just outside Port Of Spain.
