The Tide Is High - The Paragons

Thirteen years before Blondie introduced "The Tide Is High" to a new wave audience it was a relatively obscure rocksteady single from John Holt's mighty Paragons. The original 45 dates back to 1967 and this Treasure Isle reissue certainly reveals the dodgy recording technology of that era. However, if you're anything like me you'll find the hep harmonies and sweet violin solo more than make up for any technical shortcomings. Enjoy.
