Remarks The duo Reuben“ Andy” Anderson and Joanne“ Joey” Dennis were steady hitmakers
and among the first singers to record with The Skatalites. Their evergreen“ You’re
Wondering Now” has been famously covered by The Specials and the late Amy
Winehouse. “Wonder No More” was an earnest follow-up and the Ska-talites
delivered on the hit formula.
“When Don solo like that it come like he wants to tear dung heaven & earth!” Not
sure if Knibb said this after or during the playback of the recording but the power and
the gravity generated by Drummond’s solo is something to behold. “ Heaven &
Earth” shouldn’t be confused with the Rolando & Powie and Port-O-Jam label
releases of“ Roll On Sweet Don.” The confusion stems from original Jamaican issue of
the LP wrongly listing“ Roll On Sweet Don.” Then in 1991, Heartbeat Records
compounded the error by titling“ Heaven And Earth” as“ Roll On Sweet Don” while
including in parens“ (Heaven And Hell).”
The first reissue as 45 in the history.
