Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Greensleeves presents a limited edition unique Clarks Desert Boot shaped picture disc pressing of two back to back 'Clarks Booty' 80ís reggae classics. Side A offers Little John's "Clarks Booty", which has to be the ultimate Clarks celebration and like the shoes themselves it's a tune that has never been out of style and fashion. It was voiced for ace producer King Jammy over the "Father Jungle Rock" riddim and it's twinned for this one off pressing with Scorcher's Put On Me Clarks, a lethal Roots Radics & Junjo Lawes reworking of Barrington Levy's "Sister Carol", underpinned by the "Full Up" riddim.

The recent publication of the "Clarks In Jamaica" book saw major press focus on this longtime Jamaican obsession with Clarks shoes. The book deservedly received large scale reviews and features in The Observer, Sunday Telegraph, etc. along with positive BBC radio & TV coverage. Public and press awareness about the Clarks JA connection has never been higher and this special Record Store Day pressing is a 'catch it while you can release' that you dare not miss out on.
