Too Much Pressure

If yet another 2 Tone legend is to be believed Neol Davies put together a band in a mere 3 weeks with some help from Lynval Golding. Recruiting musicians from various reggae and soul bands he formed The Selecter, which up until then didn't actually exist as a band. Vocals were added in the form of ex radiographer, Pauline Vickers.

Pauline adopted the name Black to avoid any embarrassing situations when she sneaked off work to play gigs and has used the name ever since. This, their first of 3 singles for the label, got a welcome boost in sales by the success of the first Two Tone Tour, which played it's first date on October 19th 1979 at Brightons Top Rank.

The recording session for this single produced a third track, ‘Street Feeling’ which was to appear on the band's debut album.
