The master tapes of the four tracks that were recorded at the Harry J sessions were only recently discovered. `Utopia’ was the only track that had been given a final mix back in the day. It was released on 7″ on the Black Star Liner later in the year and then reissued on Partial Records in 2014. The other tracks were never mixed until early 2017 when this task was undertaken by Dougie Wardrop. As well as mixing `Jerusalem’ (Gerald did a later version of this tune for Rej Forte’s Jah Works label in the early 1990s), `Working For The Dollar’ and `Constant Spring’, it was decided that `Utopia’ should also enjoy a fresh mix.
