The "Ooh" – Oh Yeah, Blue Beat Baby! We launch this week with both sides of the only record in existence by Brigitte Bond & the Blue Beats, a 7" 45 on… wait for it… Blue Beat! Also a pair of hat tricks (shoulda done 3!)… 3 Bobs (Mr. Walls, Mr. Andy and Mr. Marley) and 3 Ska Beat 45s. And I won't even charge you the 3 bob… how much is that in smackeroonies, anyway?
