Gwen Guthrie – Peanut Butter (12inch)
Voiced by Gwen Guthrie, rhythm section by Sly and Robbie, keyboards by Wally Badarou, mix by Larry Levan. The mixes Larry does for Island with Sly and Robbie and Gwen Guthrie in 1982/1983 are among the most exciting records of that era. The Padlock mini-LP which was released in 1983 on the Garage Records label includes ‘Hopscotch’, ‘Seventh heaven’, ‘Getting hot’, ‘Peanut butter’ and ends with the brilliant title track ‘Padlock’. The sleeve of the German Island pressing was done by Tony Wright, who was also responsible for Lee Perry‘s ‘Return of Super Ape‘ cover art.
